We had a great week, the three of us, wandering around and exploring Dublin! Was the first time in Ireland for all of us and we are decided fans.
We spent a lot of time wandering the streets, browsing book stores (full of books in English!), and enjoying live music over a pint in a few of the many pubs in the city. One highlight was definitely the Leprechaun museum, which we visited on a total whim. It was so interesting to hear more about Irish folklore and storytelling.
Like the displaced Vancouver-ites we are, we also made it to the beach. It's been 9 months since I've seen the ocean and I was so happy to get this opportunity! Somehow, ocean cities are just always better...
It really was weird ordering off English menus again. So weird in fact, that I actually spoke German to one cashier. Poor guy :)
Now, home again. And back to plotting crafty-goodness for my shop! Was so great to get away for a few days, but as always, I'm sure glad to be home.
