After a very long time in the car, we finally crossed over into the state of Florida, and what comes to mind when you think of Florida…beaches, of course! Although our goal was to see the Space Shuttle launch, we were looking forward to seeing the ocean and beaches, too! The first one we saw […]

As we were driving through County Donegal, we came across a quaint little Folk Village museum in Glencolmcille. We didn’t have much time to stop and actually tour the museum, but we did check out the nearby beach, and had a quick bite to eat in the restaurant that near the gift shop of the […]
