Remember to change your money

We were driving in Northern Ireland down the east coast of Ireland. It was too far to make it to Belfast so we found a bed and breakfast that had a view of the Irish Sea.  The land sloped down toward the sea.  The lady at B&B said that she would take our Irish punts (we still had not been able to exchange our money). It was after all Easter weekend.  Tis true that everywhere you drive in Ireland, rock walls are beside you or you can see miles of them throughout the variety of green shades of the fields and bogs. Truly, I have never seen so many different shades of green. 

That evening we drove into town to find a place for dinner; many of the pubs which serve dinner were so filled with smoke that it just took our appetite away and we had the other problem of not having English pounds.  After asking about as many places as they had in this small town if they would exchange or accept Irish money, we were turned down so the next best thing was to improvise.  We gassed up, bought a loaf of bread, peanut butter and jelly and put it on my credit card.  So it was a peanut butter dinner with a pop meal.  It was a cheap meal but worked.
