The Prince of Adare
OMG! Is That My Prince???
Okay if you follow this blog you already know that I came to the Emerald Isle looking for self-confidence, a future and a prince. Just to be clear, it was a prince with a castle, that was on my original list.
Well, it turns out he's no more here, than he was in the U.S. but I did find this lovely man. A prince, for sure. Okay, he's in a museum but he does seem to know his way to a castle. It's a large old manor in the center of the town. It's currently under construction but will be grand by the end of this year.
And even more wonderful is the town that surrounds it. It's called Adare and it's known as one of the prettiest villages in Ireland. It's filled with picturesque thatched-roof cottages. It looks like fairies surely live all around. In my mind...I followed that soldier across the grounds and through the beautiful estate.
Like so many other men in and out of my life, he was a facade. He was just a mannequin dressed to attract lonely maidens like me. I admit I'm a pretty easy target. This is as close as I've come so far...but I'm not giving up. I have changed the search a bit though. A castle would still be wonderful. But now that I'm here in the land of such dreams, I have to admit that an honest, caring man and a simple beautiful cottage would be just as much of a dream come true.
So...the search continues.
