Sailing from Wales to Ireland, Tuesday, August 18th

once i came back inside on the Irish Ferry, there was a four-hour ride ahead of us,  so i decided to run all around looking at things.  it’s funny, because it was a large ship, but nothing like the grand Queen Mary 2. This is an historic moment, because kevin is...
