Let The Light Shine In
Double Bed Room
Today is just for shopping and seeing some of the shops and craft stores around Dingle. Spent some time at Dingle Crystal and have made an appointment for tomorrow morning to see a demonstration of Sean working. After that we plan to take the Dingle loop drive around the peninsula.
I would like to tell you a little bit about our house. The main part of the house has four rooms that are in a straight line. First is a small bedroom which opens out to the main living room. This living room has a peat burning stove which used to be a large fireplace. This was where all of the cooking was originally done, in what at that time was a fireplace. Continuing out of the living room, still in a straight line is the big bedroom. Going out of that room, still in a straight line is a very small bedroom. In the living room above the first bedroom is a loft that is large enough for two single beds. Miles and Connor would love this location. All of this part of the house was built sometime before 1847 (the year of the great famine). In 1960's a kitchen and bathroom were added to the house. The main house is constructed of slate and plastered over and whitewashed. The walls are about 2 feet thick.
As I look out the window here at the internet cafe, it looks like it may be getting lighter outside, maybe the rain is going away!!
