Again we stopped because it looked interesting. This time it’s the Rocky Mount State Historic Site. When we walked through the door of the main house we stepped back in time to 1791 as costumed interpreters welcomed us to experience life in the earliest days of the United States. George Washington was president, tea was a precious commodity and carefully guarded, important papers were bound in red ribbon, linen was raised, processed, spun, and woven on site, and each individual owned only one set of clothes at a time. It’s amazing how much life has changed in 218 years and yet how much it’s the same.

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
