We have a wealth of riding buddies on every visit.
John's old friends love to take us out on both old and new roads.
Declan has an encyclopedic knowledge of tiny roads in Ireland
and is a great source of wonderful and scenic routes. He had some
business in our area and offered to come get us and bring us north
to explore some roads in his neighborhood.

We had a nice relaxed start to our day, with coffee at the Battle
of the Boyne visitor centre, followed by a stop at Dowth
Castle, the birthplace of John
Declan brought us on some terrific roads.
There's a reason wind
turbines are now a common sight in Ireland!
John was actually on the ride too.
(John is the photographer in the family. Pamela carries a very
simple point and shoot to get the occasional shot of John, just
to show he was there!)
The boys doing what they do best - not asking for directions.
