It keeps getting more better as we visited Malehide Castle, home of 30 generations of Talbots. The last surviving family member who lived there passed away only last month. I am struck by how OLD things are in this place. Craftsmanship that was built to last. A chair 500 years old!?! Last month I threw away an office chair I had for about three years.
But the day was topped off by our visit to the Wishing Well, a local pub with a standing engagement of local musicians gathering to play traditonal Irish folk songs. Good friends, a few Guinness, and the tunes of a beautiful land being passed on to the next generation. It was a magical night.
