Blarney Castle on a day with blue skys and whisps of clouds

Ireland: Blarney Castle

I was recently on a trip to get some inspiration for castles and the like. We don’t have a lot of those in the Pacific Northwest. In September I travel with a delightful group of ladies to the majestic land of the Irish, which is chuck-a-block full of old castles, cemeteries, monasteries, and ruins.

Blarney Castle & Gardens was one of my favorite stops. It was a beautiful, photogenic location, and the weather was well behaved. A couple days before the area had been hit by quite a wind storm. Up on the tower it was still as cold as tits on witch, but it could have been MUCH worse. (I’m not actually sure why witches have cold tits. Is it because of dancing naked in the moonlight? But considering all the history/mythology of witches tied with Blarney, it seems appropriate.)
