Santa, where's the sleigh?
Special Chimney Inspection Tour in Ireland & Scotland
The whole team of inspectors was needed beginning at Bective Abbey and Trim Castle.
Trim Castle: no more deliveries here!
Next stop was Galway where we went out to Kylemore Abbey...
...a stretch break on the drive out...
That's Kylemore behind us, a beautiful, peaceful location.
...and discovered some very well maintained access points!
Quick side trip to see the Cliffs of Moher.
Then to Belfast to go see Giant's Causeway. On the way there, Pierre was very helpful in ensuring I didn't leave my hat behind.
A picture with Santa when he catches you at Giant's Causeway and lets you know which list your on is must, right?
Next we were off to Scotland!
Loch Ness: she really is very shy...
...and wouldn't come out for a quick check in even with just Santa alone.
Checked in on the team at a Summer location while they were there.
Got caught calling to let House Claus HQ know our progress thus far.
Final chimney check of the trip at Edinburgh Castle. Aging, but otherwise in fine shape for easy access from above.
