Obama and Me….

We’ve seen lots more beauty in the past two days since leaving Kilkee but we got a great surprise in a small town called Moneygall.

Around noon I was hungry and we saw a cute little cafe in the town but it was closed so we travelled on for about a kilometre when we spotted a large service station that served Tim Hortons coffee.

The same coffee we had become addicted to in Canada! We stopped off and had some coffee. Then while we were there a lovely couple from America arrived.

I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to get a picture with them…

    Love love love Co Clare. Fell in love for the first time in Kilkee, when I was 16!
    The Bridges of Ross is one of the best beauty spots in Ireland.
    Travel well and thanks for sharing your journey xx

      Thank you, Naomi! How are you and Liam and the travelling? Yes, Co. Clare seems to be the hotspot of romantic Ireland, hearing lots of stories of first love from there!

    Great! I can’t work out if that really happened or your Photoshop skills are getting really good!

      No photoshop…. by us anyway. We were just in the right place at the right time…. When you and Pam visit Barack Obama Plaza in Moneygall, where they serve Tim Hortons coffee, all will be revealed!
