Eye Candy for the Desert Soul

Howdy y'all! I realized, literally two minutes after posting my previous entry, that I completely forgot about my promise to post Northern Ireland photos. Here they are, sirs and ma'ams:

So, this isn't very important... but it makes me smile. Two of my favorite Prestatyn-dwellers, Nic and Jordan, like to call me 'Chan Chan'. When I saw my ferry ticket, I laughed because it made me think of them!

Goodbye, Liverpool!

 Hello, Belfast! 

The start of the Portrush Raft Race.

The teams all had different themes. I was rather fond of these guys. Hardcore Irish, right?

A pirate raft that definitely took a long time to finish. I think they might have capsized.

Styrofoam rafts. Clever, but dysfunctional.

Backwards!

A bunch of the rafts rounding the cliff.

And the finish!

That's pretty much it. I know, not too exciting, but it's something. I'm mighty proud of myself for remembering to take some pictures. Ha.

So, that's the purpose of this post, but you know what? I kinda want to talk. So I will!

About a week ago we moved to Kennewick, Washington. Oh my gosh, I love Kennewick. Absolutely love it. It's sunny all the time (I thought it would rain), it's a pretty small city, and the people are really friendly. I think I love it so much because it reminds me of Benbrook, TX, where I grew up. The whole moving experience sucked a bit (especially since it coincided with my birthday), but it wasn't too bad. We didn't have any furniture other than air mattresses, an army cot, and 5 camp chairs for 4 days or so, no internet for a little over a week, and no TV for a little over a week. I didn't mind the internet and TV, but I really miss having a bed. Even now I'm sleeping on the couch because I don't have a bedroom and my brother couldn't set up his waterbed due to the lease, so he gets my old bed. Another incentive to get back to Wales! Ha.

Ok, so I guess I didn't want to talk too much since that's all I had to say. Hope y'all are doing well! 




By the way, I am obsessed with Mumford & Sons. Their new album comes out September 24th. I'm just a little bit beyond psyched.
