While writing "Waves in the Wind" it seemed only reasonable (not to mention a hell of a lot of fun) to visit Ireland and see the settings for my novel for myself. So, off my wife Glenda and I went to see the sights, and oh what a wonderful, friendly land we found.
Photos alone are never enough to capture the true essence of a place, but here are a few shots of Kilkenny. Maybe they'll offer a bit of the town's flavor.
Of all the towns we visited in Ireland, Kilkenny was our favorite. Oh yes. Glenda would live there. I wouldn't mind it myself.
Here's a shot of Kilkenny's city center. Ireland's villages are invariably picturesque, almost like a Currier and Ives etching.
The street is reserved for pedestrians only. We found these to be fairly common throughout Ireland.
To the left and unseen is a shopping area filled with Irish craft shops. Glenda picked up some wonderful hand-knitted woolen sweaters there at reasonable prices.
