The Wicklow Way

It's often called the garden of Ireland with it's lush valleys, blooming bogs and stunning waterfalls. County Wicklow rarely disappoints. We had to get back there one more time before our departure. With a car rented for the weekend visit to County Cavan to see the ancestral home again, we were able to squeeze in one more drive through the Sally Gap, do a little bog jumping, get in a quick Avoca shop and hit a food festival in Dun Laoghaire. It was a fantastic generally sunny day with only a bit of rain while we were shopping. It was perhaps a bit too windy for us, especially Harris at the lookout over Lough Tay, but he handled it with a smile.
