On a recent trip to Ireland I was quite amazed at the beauty of the west coast of that country. A rough and rocky coast line exemplifies that character of the land and its people. As we traveled through the southern and western coast, we were constantly amazed by the beauty no matter what the weather. Dark and dreary or sunny and bright, the landscape was spectacular. What I did learn was that beauty is not just in color but can also be in shades of grey. I recommend this trip to anyone who is interested.
