Ireland - Day 2 - The Lakes of Killnary

Saturday, August 5, 2006

On our first full day in Ireland, we decided to stay local and explore Killnary (the city our hotel was in). In our guide book, there was a whole section on the Lakes of Killnary and since the pictures looked beautiful, we started there. We spent the entire day walking through nature trails exploring the different lakes and wooded areas.
In the morning it was quite overcast so I started with black in white film knowing that the color film would end up grainy and grey, but I wasn't happy with the results I got with the black and white either. The photos don't do the area justice at all. The clouds hung over the mountains like a low deep fog and the sun made the sky glow behind the clouds.
Later in the afternoon, the sun came out and it turned out to be a beautiful day. We found different places in the guide book to visit and spent the day wondering around woods and the the nature trails of national parks trying to find the spots in the book. We walked miles upon miles and much to my surprise, I really enjoyed it. I never thought I'd enjoy vacations that involved so little relaxation, but in an odd way, it was relaxing and peaceful and I always enjoy exploring new places with Wayne. We're so lucky we enjoy each other like we do. I couldn't imagine taking separate vacations like so many couples seem to do.
