I recently moved to Ireland from the west coast of the United States. I am posting photos of the wild and wonderful things I encounter.

110 Pick Up
I am quite fond of green pick up trucks. My vehicle back in the states was a trustworthy old Ford truck painted hunter green. Yesterday I was at Eason's book store on O'Connell Street and I saw this truck parked out front. Very cool. This is a Land Rover Defender 110. They look very sturdy don't they? I am told that you can dismantle the entire vehicle with a screwdriver. haha Anyway, they are supposed to be easy to work on. My other half tells me that one of her coworkers gave her a ride home once in his Land Rover. She said, "It was a bone shaker." Apparently, the suspension needs a little improvement in the comfort department. One thing I have noticed about Ireland--or at least about Connemara--is that they have a lot of roads with grass growing down the middle. I used to say that you know you are lost when you are on a road with grass growing down the middle of it. Now, I kind of like those roads. They lead to wonderful places.
