A Room with a Castle View!

Hello Northern Ireland! We’re staying in Carrickfergus tonight and got one of their new rooms…with a view of the ocean and Carrickfergus Castle, which we are headed over to investigate shortly. BEAUTIFUL weather here…and I know I owe you all a blog and photos from yesterday. The WiFi is much better here at least. Later!


Northern Ireland/Ulster

Years of genealogy research by Dave have led us to Northern Ireland where we believe both of our ancestors are from. In fact, we may have a record of where our relatives actually knew one another and some documents have recorded a dispute. What are the odds their long-lost American relatives would one day meet online, fall in love and get married. Pretty neat.

We’re looking forward to the Coastal Causeway, castles, quaint villages and a pint or two…or three. Stay tuned to this page for the 2nd half of our trip after we visit Scotland.
