Across the Pond

My grandparents made the long journey to America in the early 1900’s.  My grandfather from Northern Ireland, and my grandmother from the Republic of Ireland (after studying the history, I have a better understanding of the difference).  They met in Philadelphia, raised 6 children, summered in Stone Harbor, and eventually settled in Avalon in the late 1950’s.

My husband and I will travel to Northern Ireland this week.  My goal is to walk along our beach Tuesday, and then walk along the Irish Sea on Wednesday!  We are staying in Newcastle- a low key east coast seaside town (hey, that sounds familiar).

I am looking forward to finding distant relatives while my husband plays golf!  Sláinte
