Carlingford, Ireland

Originally we had planned a walking tour of The Dingle Way for my dads visit but it was not to be. First up my back injury was still on the mend. Then the volcano ash delayed my dads flight. However they eventually landed in Ireland three days later. We decided to still tackle part of the walk but the night before heading down to Dingle my dad picked up a nasty stomach bug. It took two days before he felt better but then my little brother caught the bug! We gave it another day before giving up on the idea of Dingle. But all was not lost as we decided on a two day trip to Carlingford before they had to head back to Australia. Carlingford is only about an hours drive from Dublin and has everything you need in a short trip away. Mountains to climb, water for staring at or splashing in, medieval castles, great pubs and excellent restaurants! Here are some pics I took and edited on my iPhone. I downloaded a fantastic app for editing. And I am writing this post on my iPhone! IPhones are the business!

      Thanks mise. I think I went a little overboard on the colour saturation but hey I really like my colours to pop on my country walks. 😉

    Thanks Will. I am still learning how to use the phone on the road. It does make life so much easier when you don’ have to carry a camera and laptop or if you just get inspired by something while you are out and about.
