Only slightly MIA . . .

(A series of posts leading up to/including The Nocturnes Photo Tour in the West of Ireland, July 15-25, 2013; with a personal Genealogical Research Extension, in and around Ballina, July 25-29 - with follow-up posts starting right here, right now!)

MIA? - Missing In [North] America, that is! And, well now - wasn't that a great adventure? Ireland 2013. As mentioned, we had PLANNED to blog our images, observations and commentaries, while in Ireland - and as you've probably figured out - that didn't happen! We all were having WAY too much fun; getting by on 4-5 hours sleep every night - and no worse for wear! Note: one person on the Tour was able to keep an online, private "diary" about our itinerary, travels, discoveries - which we're working on as a post in this space sometime soon! As close as I came to a visual (or otherwise) recording in real time, were the Instagrams ( I did while on Tour - with my customary oblique take on things!

Now, perhaps you've seen some of the work done on the trip via our e-newsletter, The Nocturnes in Ireland 2013 Flickr Group -, or the above-mentioned Instagrams. In addition, we faithfully posted to Facebook while in Ireland at - if you haven't seen the work, plan to visit some these sites, soon.

We are back in America now, and plan to continue with these posts about this past trip, Ireland-at-large, future tours, and travel in general. And Good News - we have a return trip to Ireland scheduled - October 1-11, 2014!
