First, we put on our raincoats and went to Desmond Castle, which was also used as a jail and is now as a museum of wine.
They had a little checklist the kids could fill out to make sure they got to see everything there.
We went to a couple bookstores in Kinsale and finally found The Diary of Anne Franke, which I'd been looking for the whole week. The girls each got a book too.
We also wandered into an old cemetery.
Next, we headed over to have Afternoon Tea. It was nice to come out of the rain for a while. We read while we waited for our food.

|Our plates were garnished with real flowers!|

|Kinsale, from under my umbrella|
|Climbing lots of stairs again!|
|Up at the top of the castle was open (so we got rained on some more)|
