With two weeks to go before we depart for our Ireland adventure, I’m just trying to keep from buying every product in America to take with me. I’m especially vulnerable right now to the temptation to buy photo accessories. I just got a new camera backpack with room for all my lenses as well as everything else (mainly rain gear) I would need for a day trip–I’m planning several of these while Marc hits the Irish links. I’ve booked a trip to the Skelligs, and a full day with a pro landscape photographer. And I plan to head to the Aran Islands by ferry and the top of Croagh Patrick by foot. Of course the camera will have to stay back at the room for one of my day tours: sea kayaking!

I hope to post photos on this blog, so if you are interested in my take on the Emerald Isle, stay posted!  Here’s a map with markers for everywhere we’ll be going.
