Inessa,

Thank you for visiting my gallery and for your gracious compliments.

My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting Ireland briefly in 1994 and hope to return someday for a longer stay. It is such a beautiful country with the friendliest people!

We were only able to see a little of Dublin then drove to Cork and Blarney. Spent the night in Wexford, then to Dun Laoghaire to catch the ferry back to Wales.

Cheers from Spokane, Washington

Blarney is a lovely place, isn't it? I have to upload a few pics. Now it is a bit different than in 1994. There is a photographer who is taking pics while you are kissing the rock:). You can have your close up and even video, if your wish.

Cheers, Inessa

We have pictures kissing the rock. That is the main reason we went to Blarney. I have heard about the Blarney Stone all my life. We could not pass up the chance to kiss it. My wife is sorry she let me do it, because she says now I talk too much:)

Unfortunately, they were not taking videos when we were there

I have one picture of the Blarney Castle in my gallery. Would love to get more someday.

Beautiful photo, Leo! A lot of atmosphere with the clouds and the light and colourful boats.

Thank you, May.

The harbor is a fantastic sight full of these colorful boats and beautiful blue water. Malta is a wonderful place to visit with many photo opportunities and very friendly people.

Greetings, Leo

I love Malta where I've been in 1997: this was in La Valette harbour? I saw similar boats in Marsaxlokk. Bernard

Bernard,

This is a harbor on the other side of the island. Can't remember the name of the city. We loved the colorful boats.

beautiful gallery leo, feel free to visit my gallery. gr. from the netherlands

Leo Roundtree on December 19, 2010

Thank you, roeli bindels. You have great gallery. I will visit often.

Also, my wife and I have visited The Netherlands several times and we love it. The people there are warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. And the landscape reminds us of our home in South Louisiana.

We visited Amsterdam, Madurodam, Den Haag, Volendam, Kinderdijk and many other places.

Greetings from Spokane, Washington, USA Leo

thank you leo for visting. I have been in washington state several times, my brother lives in issaquah near seattle since 12 years. like that state very much, lots of nature there. went also to several other states. when you ever will visit the netherlands again, you have to visit the southern part where I live. Maastricht is a nice city and brussels is only 2 hours driving away, within 5 hours you are in paris and 2 hours in cologne in germany. ....merry x-mast and a happy new year.

Leo Roundtree on December 23, 2010

Thank you, Roeli Bindels. We would love to visit The Netherlands again. We have many fond memories of our time there. We were always made to feel welcome.

We have driven through Maastricht a couple of times, but did not stop to visit. Maybe next time. It is great to be centrally located as you are and be able to reach all of those cities in a short time. If I drive west for three hours, I am still in Washington. :)

We lived at Rhein-Main Air Bas near Frankfurt, Germany for 5 years.

I'm glad you like Washington. It is a nice place to live. When you visit again, maybe you can come to Spokane so I can show you around Eastern Washington.

Merry Christmas, Leo
