Ireland, Day 6

Rain, rain, rain. Rain all fracking day and night.

We drove to Waterford, it took almost four hours, and we didn't find a damned thing at the Waterford store that both of us really liked.

We drove back from Waterford and, starving, stopped at a little cafe called the Blackberry Cafe. They were preparing to close so they weren't serving food, only sweets. I had a piece of fabulous, heavy, buttery, lemony lemon pound cake, and Jess had a dry, practically tasteless brownie with so-so chocolate ice cream. We both ordered lattes, which were okay. We drove another three hours before getting back to the hotel, where we ordered dinner. Mine was Thai red curry with chicken, Jess' was a bland risotto with peas. I felt bad that Jess was striking out today, and the drive was horrendous. There were few things to see along the way today, and we couldn't take pictures if we wanted to because the rain was so hard.

Overall, Day 6 sucked.

That must be a big disappointment for you guys -- having days like this, where nothing seems to be going as planned.

So, have you bought any souvenirs yet?

Sorry to hear about the rain, but at least there was cake...and, if we believe Jess' blogpost, it couldn't have been ALL bad.
