A great day in Killarney national park

i’ve had a very busy day today traveling. well not so much traveling, but we went to killarney national park. its a big park, it stretches for miles, its full of nature trails, lakes, scenic walks, history, and other things to do. we spent the whole day at the park. we got there around 11 AM. after getting up early, getting ready, packing a picnic lunch, we drove to the park. we walked some of the trails. i think i got around 5000 steps in today in total from all the walking around I did. then after walking we decided to go out on a boat. the boat took us across to an island, where we stopped off and ate our lunch and we got to see the meeting of the waters, what it is is where the 3 killarney lakes intersect. its very beautiful. then the boat brought us back again and when we got back we decided to go on a horse and cart. its pretty expensive to do that. i really wanted to go on one though so i payed for all of us to get on. the driver was very friendly and as we drove he told us about the history of the park. he also let my nephew sit up front with him and he let me pet the horse. the horse was beautiful. he kept nudging my hand and breathing into it. sniffing my hand to see if i had any apples. i actually did have some so i asked the driver if i could give him some and he said yes i could. so it was great I got to feed him apple. the driver took us to tork waterfall and let us off there to take photos and see the waterfalls. we’d seen it before but we got off anyway and took some pictures. after the driver took us back to our drop off point we decided to go in to the grass and sit on our picnic blankets.we sat down for about an hour, just taking in the sun. the weather stayed absolutely beautiful for us all day. there was no rain. the sun shone and i even got a sunburn. it was a fabulous day. we left at around 5, came back to our apartment and my sister took the kids to the hotel swimming pool for a few hours. while she did that mom and me stayed behind and mom made dinner while i just fiddled with my phone and went on facebook. after dinner we just chilled out and watched some tv as we were all very tired. its gone 10 PM now. I’d say we’ll all go to bed pretty soon. We’re all exhausted and we could all do with a good nights sleep.
