Hello there friends!
I think today, I will share with you a very suspenseful, keep you at the edge of your seat,
nail biting story. What about you ask? How about the spectacular Blarney castle!? If you have never been to Ireland, I would definitely say have it on your bucket list.
Truly a magical place that will forever be etched in our hearts and in our memories. Ok, enough mush… sooo… the famous Blarney castle, you know the castle..
Have I mentioned, Ireland is full of castles…some are even just random, in the middle of nowhere. But the Blarney castle is on sprawling land and beautiful scenery that surrounds.
Did I also mention, that
you basically get four seasons
all in one day.
It starts off raining, snowing, sleet, hail
and then if you’re lucky some sunshine will head your way.
Regardless of the weather, it just does not matter…
you don’t go to Ireland for the sun and sand..
So, the story goes
here we are waiting, and waiting to climb up to the top of this most beautiful Blarney castle
and an easy feat it was NOT…
just getting up to the castle is a haul
If you have bad knees, you can forget about even going into the castle
or I should say,
I would not recommend it.
It’s a very long way up to the top…very cold, and an anxious climb up there as well.
My Mom may look happy right here….
but I can tell you
she was nervous, and very anxious.
So was I, but I did not lead onto that
we were going up!
Now you know the tale, when you get to the top
you kiss the Blarney stone
suppose to give you the gift of gab
do these people know who I am?
And here you are,
at the very top
overlooking the most gorgeous
a feeling of accomplishment…
because as I mentioned it is not an easy way up.
The stairs are stones, winding,
turning, slippery slates
And you make it.
and you are ready to kiss the stone,
so you get down, lay on your back,
and there is a Man there to assist you
you know just in case you fall off the castle
and he tells you to slide back
and that is where you
STOP and say
No, I’m good, thanks!
and never even kiss the Blarney stone!
That was me:)
for the record, my Mom did not even attempt,
with her back and arthritis
she may still be lying there .
And here the rest of the family went skipping away
or should I say chattering away
the Blarney stone!
