Scenes from Dun Laoghaire on a sunny day in mid-October

We arrived in Dublin to uncharacteristically blue skies and a temperature of only 2 degrees, according to the captain of our Aer Lingus aeroplane as we landed.

We took the 'blue' bus to the Roya; Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire the other side of Dublin Bay. Dad came over about an hour later and we took the DART train to Howth, back the other side of the bay again!

It was good to see the old man, as I hadn't seen him for over two years, for one reason or another. He was looking well, just walking a bit slowly.

Howth was a delightful fishing village at the end of a peninsula with lots of fish restaurants andfishmongers. Mum would have loved it there. After a walk along the quayside, we went into the Bloody Stream pub, next to the station for a delicious lunch served with a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. I had fish pie, topped with parmesan which was totally scrunptious!

After a sleepy ride back to Dun Laoghaire and a short time back in the hotel, we caught the train onto Dalkey on our way to Breda's house, the first time I had been there, where we had another delicious meal, washed down with more whote wine, this time a German Riesling, the evening ending up with my falling asleep whilst watching an episode of Inspector Montalbano.
