We may not have been able to to take our 'Toto' with us, but - considering this is magickal Ireland we are talking about - none of us batted an eye to see a little Cairn terrier sitting outside a pub in Killorglin (the venue for Ireland's oldest annual fair - the Puck Fair) with exactly the same colouring as the dog who took the role in THAT film.
Late Thursday afternoon found us at a scenic point known as Ladies View along the Ring of Kerry in Killarney National Park. The name apparently stems from the admiration of the view given by Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting during their 1861 visit. From this point you can see the three lakes in all their glory - Lough Leane, Muckross Lake (also called Middle Lake) and Upper Lake. I wonder what they would have thought if they had witnessed what we all did?
But to finish for now, here is a photo of me and my Wizard-in-law, which is the affectionate term Jon uses and one which I could not put better myself.
He looks like a sad old wizard, or is he just feeling shy?
It was nearing the end of a long day and I think he was getting a bit tired.
