This past weekend, we drove down to Kinsale and visited Charles Fort. We took a guided tour and learned about how and why the fort was built, what is was used for and who lived there.
I feel lucky that I didn't live during the 1600s. It must have been very difficult. I'm especially happy that I didn't have to live at Charles Fort. It was nice enough especially for the time, but it made be grateful for what I have and all that I'm blessed with.
