This Christmas we had the opportunity to go and spend the holidays with family in Ireland. Dena’s sister and bro-in-law live there and her parents met us there. We’re so thankful to have family near. The last time we visited them we chose to fly. This time we decided to make it a true adventure and take the the ferry and drive. This was all of our first encounter with ferrying across the Irish Sea. Thankfully we had good weather, smooth sailing, and plenty of food options. It was a short and uneventful trip, for which we’re glad. I think Eli liked it best as we got to drive onto and off of the “big boat.” We’re all thankful for a pleasant first experience with the ferry.
