Day 134: Colored Houses
You may have noticed that I have posted photos of a fair number of buildings on this trip. More pink storefronts and not so many sheep. I love the bright colors of the buildings in Irish towns. When we visited Ireland in 2004 we came to this shop, Dingle Crystal. We ordered a set of four goblets and had them safely sent to the USA. To this day we think of the gentleman who did the carving on the crystal whenever we drink a glass of ice water from these precious glasses. Ireland has a grand tradtion of cut glass. All the world knows of Waterford Crystal. Dingle Crystal is an equal treasure.
