FriFotos: Summer

Summer is in full swing, especially in sticky, hot & humid DC. I’d admit that it’s not my favorite season, but I’ll take feeling sun on my face over shoveling snow any day.

Wild Atlantic Way

It’s no secret that the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland is awesome. Every year, thousands of visitors drive along the rugged Atlantic coastline (which reminded me a lot of coastal Maine). We spent one afternoon driving along a small portion of it located in County Clare. The ocean scenery was absolutely stunning! We loved driving […]
