Where in the World is Smokey?

Kissing the Blarney Stone

Roger Lee graduated from UT Knoxville in 1983 with a degree in computer science He now lives Orlando, Fla., where he is a senior software design engineer with Northrop Grumman.

"These pictures were taken in Ireland earlier this year where my wife, Terri, and I were vacationing for 10 days in May 2008," he wrote.

The first photo is from Blarney Castle, built about 600 years ago. Visitors venture to the top of the tower to kiss the Blarney Stone. Once you do that, legend says, you'll never again be lost for words.

The second photo was taken at the Great Skellig, an outcrop of rock rising more than 700 feet above sea level. An early Christian Monastery is perched on a ledge close the top.

The third is at Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland. It is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption.

Lee added, "My wife and I had a blast meeting folks in Ireland who were curious about the shirt."
