Continuing on our Rabbie's tour, we left Northern Ireland (UK) and drove west back into the Republic of Ireland - back to euros. We had had one embarrassing incident the night before in Portrush (Northern Ireland) when the restaurant we chose said their Visa machine was out of order. No problem, we'll pay in dollars or euros, we thought, but no, the local currency was pounds sterling! and that was all that they would accept. Fortunately we were saved from washing dishes when their credit card reader came back online just in time!

Most mornings we are served a full Irish breakfast, which has lots of very thick bacon, fried or scrambled egg, sausage, "pudding" (another sausage?) and tomato. It gets a little heavy after a while!

I will let the photos and captions speak for themselves. Our route for our entire 9-day excursion is shown here.

We traveled from place to place in our 16-passenger van through fog, rain, and sunshine, alternating rapid succession. The scenery ranged from bleak to glorious!
