I’ve said for a long time now that I want to visit Ireland. The rolling hills, the amazing coastlines, the castles, the leprechauns. That‘s right, I said leprechauns. I’d love to catch a glimpse of leprechaun in its natural habitat.
But seriously now, I would love to visit the Emerald Isle. Unfortunately, travel (especially abroad) isn’t in the cards for me at the moment. So, I’ll just have to console myself with the landscapes of my home state of Maine. I’ve come across a few places here in Maine where I can pretend that I’m wandering the Irish countryside.
Here’s a perfect example. One day while my mother and I were taking a walk along the Sunrise Trail between Machias and East Machias, we came across this misty vista that immediately made me think of a place I’ve never been. Awesome how that happens sometimes, isn’t it?
I will go there someday. Oh yes. I will go there someday.
Until next time…
