This morning we visited the Ashford Castle. It seems that Ireland is full of castles! They sure are old and pretty. It was another great day to walk around, exploring the castle and its grounds. As you can see by the photo, the longer we are here the more we are dressing like the locals. They still stare at us, but we think it has to do with us being such well dressed, Irish-looking, house pets. Once we get the accent down, we will be able to pass for locals!
After our tour of the castle, we took a break in the form of a picnic! Apparently we all had too much champagne. After a few hours, we had all shed our fancy clothes and posed for the cameras in nothing but Irish hats and smiles! CHEESE!
After lunch and a cat nap, we all dressed up in our best Irish clothes, complete with Kilts. Then it was time to perform at the Furry Bagpipe Festival.
Sixteen cats and dogs from around the world make up the first ever, International Interspeices Irish Bagpipe Band! Don't we just look cute in our skirts! If you think we look good, you should have heard us play! Next year Roscoe wants us all to play our own music WHILE we dance in Lord of the Dance. That cat has got too much ambition!
At the end of the day, everyone went their own way. Some hit the hotel pool, some went for a romantic stroll, while others headed back out for a night at the pub. As for us, we retired to our room early to do what we do best, sleep!
Lets just hope that those thundering herds of elephants keep it down tonight!
