Helen & Mike Reshkin are blogging & twitter friends who were on holiday in Ireland from Chicago, in June/July this year. They found a day to spend with me, but unfortunately it was a rather well washed with rain.

We began our adventure at Lough Neagh, alas, the sky was so low we were hardly able to see beyond our noses. 😦 I didn’t bother to get out of the car. We moved on to Clotworthy House.

It is amazing how the place has improved over the past four years.

We were not alone. The Heron kept a beady on us.

Helen & Mike, I enjoyed sharing one of my favourite places with you. Thanking you for making time to spend with me.

  1. Thank you for showing us around Antrim, GM. It was lovely to spend some time with you. I’m still working on Mike to let me build a hill with a spiral path up it in our back yard. Your before and after photos really attest to how much progress they’ve made with the restoration at Clotworthy House.

    • stwidgie, I owe you an apology. I wrote this early this morning when half asleep. I was thinking one name and typed another. :Oops: You remind me of another friend called Helen! I’m digging a hole to bury my embarrassment! I think that Mike should build a Motte for you in the back yard. It would be a great conversation piece. It was great to have time with you & Mike.

  2. I have two Us in my life! By now, you know both reasonably well.

    If I ever followed the alphabet route, this is one alphabet that I will omit.

    • Yes. U do!

      I got a little distracted in this journey through the alphabet, there are not many letters left – another five, but they are not as easy as the earlier letters.
