    I'm going to do this in a few separate posts or else i'll have loads of photos at the end, so wait there 'til i've finished!

    Today we went to Wicklow.

    A couple of hours driving took us to Avoca where we visited 'The Meeting of the Waters' and saw a travellers caravan (i did ask their permission before i took their pic!)

    We carried on to Clara Vale where there was a beautiful quiet spot by the old church and school (no longer used as a school)

    we carried on to Glendalough and walked from the Upper Lake to the Lower Lake, which was maybe a couple of miles or so, where we saw the
    monastery.

    it was a lovely walk - the boys played in the trees, the sun shone, the scenery was beautiful....



    i'm having trouble with my photos at the moment - bear with me.

    blimet that took ages, got there in the end though! here they are.....

    When we left the lakes we went to Laragh for tea and scones - yum yum, after which we took the boys to a trout farm so they could do some fishing. They did really well and caught 6 fish in around 15 minutes!

    We couldn't stay there too long, at 5.00 per fishing line and 3.90 a fish they were costing us a fortune!

    part five - last but not least!

    After fishing and all the yukky stuff that goes alongside preparing the fish for consumption we travelled home over the Wicklow gap, stopping in Baltinglass (if i remember correctly) for some chips to fill our hungry tums! We arrived back at around 9pm after a long and lovely day....
