There once were 2 girls from the west
who set off for 4 months on a quest.
For they wanted to see
how the world could be.
Now they’ve stopped on the coast for a rest…
This morning in the county of Wicklow
we got up and got dressed to go
out to town to explore
and find out once more
why it’s film credits continue to grow.
Now here a castle once stood.
From the old 4th story one could
see attacks from the ridge
and raise the drawbridge
which was likely made of strong wood.
Our next stop was the Historic Gaol,
which we learned was a jail most foul!
In this most haunted place
the prisoners would face
hardships without so much as a towel.
At lunchtime, out finding treats
were school kids in sweaters and pleats.
Kristin said No!
Justine said Go!
to the uniforms we saw on the streets.
At this point it was time for a snack.
But the proper provisions we did lack!
At the supermarket we stood
with a yummy baked good
plus fruit & frozen veggies in our pack!
We took a short break to eat.
It wasn’t much of a feat.
But Justine did put
ice on her foot
as she does each time we are beat!
Finally a delicious supper did touch our lips.
Kristin’s was a steak sandwich with a side of chips.
Justine had beef stroganoff
Not a meal at which you’d cough,
But it will likely just end on our hips!
Random Observations of this Trip:
That this side of the world needs a grip.
Young people seem to smoke
like their health is a joke.
At home their parents would flip!
What we Learned Today:
Is that here by the English Bay,
If you buy Peanut Butter
they’ll think you’re a nutter!
We don’t know how they live this way!
We’ve also learned that we fail
at getting your post in the mail.
The postcards we got,
but the stamps we did not
until 3 stops along on our trail!
Back by the part of the coast
with the view we like the most,
we wrote the better part of this verse.
(Which for us was a bit of a curse!)
Now we hope you enjoyed this post!
Love, Luck & Limericks,
