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.
