I'm tired just reading How to Bake a Cake. I would have called Ryke's in the first place. I love the photos under glass on the tables and the mirrors on the wall. Fun place. Those old homes are great! Happy St. Paddy's Day, Lynne. Hugs, Nancy

Pamela Gordon said...

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you! The bakery looks like a great place for lunch and yummy baked goods. I love those two old mansions. Houses sure had some great style and fanciness back then and so did wrought iron fences. Have a great day!

Ida said...

Mmmm the bakery sounds yummy. That sign was funny. Those homes are amazing snd the iron work fencing is fabulous.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, my love!! From one Irish lass to another.. HUGE HUGS!
I played Galway Bay, When Irish Eyes Are Smiling..and every other Irish song I could find in my books. My sons still go back once a year. They took some of their father's ashes and each let them go in the winds...the rest will wait for me.
Sending love.
