Dublin part two...


As I said in part one, we had decided we wanted walk round to the lighthouse, but by the time we got round there the wind had picked up a bit more, but it was lovely seeing all the sea spray, hitting the walls, we got some fab photos just waiting to be scrapped...

It hit the outer walls...

then if the waves were strong enough, would cascaded over onto the inner wall...

But we decided to still go for it, as not dangerous, more trying not to get wet from the spray, as we walked down on the lower wall, (not next to the sea) which was fine, but of course you couldn't see the spray coming...
It was fun though, trying to work out when was the best time to make a run for it, would we get caught by the spray and how wet would we get... but we made it, AND without getting caught out once, and was so please we did, it was a lovely little light house...

On the way back we were watching to see if there was a pattern with the waves, but typical with nature, there was not...

this bit was not so exciting, as I knew there was no other way back, lol, we just had to go for it... and we did....

I wasn't quite quick enough at one point, but with a bit of quick thinking, pulled myself up onto the railings and swung there till the water had subsided (well didn't want my boots get wet, did I?), but on the downside, hubby had the camera, but notice how far away he is taking the photo, yes such a gentleman, didn't wait for me, lol.......


It was fun though, to be honest, I really enjoyed it, as it was something we would not have normally been able to do if we had had Steven with us, so while Steven was enjoying he's time at Butlins with he's friends, (and he did as we was getting emails and photos everyday from them), we done something that we enjoyed...

Was a shame about the weather, as would have loved to have done a trip into the mountains, but that's the trouble, that's one thing you cannot book, 'the weather'... and it was over all to quick and we had to come home, as hubby was off to Bracknell on the Friday working...

...while I went to pick Steven up from school after he's week away, but he had such a fab time, that he didn't want to come home, when asked if he wanted to, he just gave me a kiss on the cheek and walked off with he's friends while waving goodbye to me, lol...

kids, don't you just love them, lol...
