I've been doing some memory lane posts of trips before digital and before blogging.
I first traveled to England with my Mom in 1960
My parents took us back as a family in 1970.
John and I first went together in 1986 to London.

I can't believe we are on part 5!!
We're in Killarney.
Click here for our 2015 visit to Killarney.
The Lakes of Killarney and Muckross House.
South and west of the town of Killarney in Co. Kerry is an expanse of rugged mountainous country. This includes the McGillycuddy's Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland which rise to a height of over 1000 metres. At the foot of these mountains nestle the world famous lakes of Killarney. Here where the mountains sweep down to the lake shores, their lower slopes covered in woodlands, lies the 10,236 hectare (26,000 acres), Killarney National Park . The distinctive combination of mountains, lakes, woods and waterfalls under ever changing skies gives the area a special scenic beauty.
This nineteenth century Victorian mansion is set against the stunning beauty of Killarney National Park. The house stands close to the shores of Muckross Lake, one of Killarney's three lakes, famed worldwide for their splendour and beauty.
In 1970 my sister and I went to Ireland with my parents and had this photo taken.
Here's my sister and I in 2005 taking this photo with my niece and nephew.
Limerick Castle - the boys went to the castle and we went shopping.
King John’s Castle, on ‘King’s Island’ in the heart of medieval Limerick City.
King John was the brother of Richard the Lionheart, associated with legends such as Robin Hood and the Knights’ of the Round Table. John, Lord of Ireland, though not as popular as his brother, was a formidable force in battle and when he set about claiming territory in Ireland, he certainly made his mark in Limerick.
Remember it is July! A trip to the beach at Milltown Malbay.
It doesn't look very warm.
Obviously my sister doesn't think so.
Seasoned Irish tourists.
Taking the plunge. My niece had brought three bikinis with her thinking the water would be warm! Nope.
A little cold!
We stayed a night in Ashford, where my parents had lived when they first got married.
On the road again! Next stop Dublin.
