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.

Harry Potter Tour
My better half and I are visiting London for the bank holiday weekend. If you didn't know, Monday is a national holiday in the Republic of Ireland: St. Patrick's Day. We were able to get some cheap flights to London on Aer Lingus and here we are! We had an amazing time today visiting the Warner Bros. studios in Leavesden. Many of the important props and sets are on display from the 8 Harry Potter movies that were filmed here. Such beautiful work goes into making the props, costumes and sets. It really makes you appreciate all the work that goes in to making a movie. It is not just the actors, it is the army of people behind them who make the movie.
