North Sea Cruise Aug 2008 - gregorykemp
Kissing the Blarney Stone! That's the Attaché doing the backwards hang at Blarney Castle near Cork. The legend of the stone isn't what most people think….  Kissing the stone doesn't bring you luck, it brings you the gift of gab. Even Grammy did the backwards hang. Go Grammy!

We got a special order of good ole Irish weather for our first port, a week of rain in one day. I had arranged to have a rental car delivered to the port, so I got to drive all over Cork County on the left hand side of the road in blinding rain. We saw the city of Cork, Blarney, and the fishing village of Kinsale (about an hour south of Cork).
