This is my new favorite coffee shop. Tucked away it took us awhile to find it. A true gem and "Dolls" The clothing boutique next door is full of beautiful items way beyond my price range.

The Fall

We went to see the Fall with Cory and Niamh. Mr Smith shuffled around as if he was in his slippers with a grumpy old man scowl on his face but his voice was magic and he oozed rock n roll.

Daz Whites

Gary and I had "Tea On The Veranda" which is actually just the steps outside our house. The view we see is a vibrant array of colourful folks playing lawn bowls. We watch for a very long time and think often about how lucky we are to live were we live.

A slight change in direction

Due to volcanic activity our plan to visit the Highlands in Scotland was put on hold. We needed a plan fast. Gary in his usual excitable manner was yammering on about hiking part of the Wicklow Way. What if it rains I protested or I can't make it or you fall and twist your ankle and the mountain rescue dogs have to be called and we cause a big commotion because of our inexperience. But with his persistence i relented and we hopped on a bus that took us on our way. Three days later we are exhausted our bodies are broken and I have a weird rash on my hands but it was a wonderful holiday and I am so glad we did it.

Paddys Day

Paddys Day in Ireland is pretty mental. We spent the morning in Dublin and then took the train to Belfast so we got to experience both cities. People everywhere!!! We loved it.
