May 1st, 2019 – Spring is Here!
Well it has had a few hiccups but it seems spring is finally here. The weather has been very sporadic reaching 60’s and 70’s some days and then back down to freezing and snow the next. However, almost all of our snow is gone now and most lakes are opening up nicely.
We have not ventured North yet to check out the camp and road conditions, but I plan on heading up for the day Friday. If all goes well, I will be going back on Saturday to stay until at least Monday. I will be sure to update the website and Facebook with any relevant details and road conditions. I am very excited to get out there and see what the winter left us, hopefully no bears in the Main Lodge!
As many of you know I went to Ireland in March for two weeks with a childhood friend of mine. We spent the first 3 days of the trip in Dublin touring the local sights and hitting all the big tourist attractions. Guinness, Jameson’s, The Whiskey Museum, to name a few. You can see a pretty common theme here, haha.
After that we spent a week driving around Ireland. We headed South first, and then West to the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher. the countryside and natural landmarks were absolutely stunning! The same with all of the architecture we found along the way. The countless churches and castles we saw were truly breathtaking.
After a week on the road we returned to Dublin for our final 3 days, and St. Patrick’s day. They celebrate St. Patrick’s day with a huge parade full of mechanical sculptures on floats, dancing, and marching bands. It was an amazing experience to watch but being 2 of the 500 000 people that travel to Dublin for the parade and ensuing parties was a little nuts. Definitely glad to see it all, but we were glad to be away from people after the night was out.
Here are a few pics from the trip:
I will post again soon, hopefully with more information about camp.
