What a GREAT day  to repay the “Sleep Enforcer”! I think we slept 12 hours!

When we finally got out of the hotel and to the bus stop it was nearly 2 p.m. We met a lovely “Dubliner” that told us great stories about his grandparents, parents and his own life. We parted company in Dublin.

After taking a short trip on the ‘Red On-Off Bus” (I would NOT recommend the RED, it ends at 6p.m.) we decided to find some grub. We met a Dubliner that told us of a Powerscourt offGrafton Street. Unfortunately, although there were many eateries, they were all closed. Hey, it was 5 O’Clock on a Sunday.

We walked around a bit and finally remembered where we had tried to get in to eat on Thursday. It was a nice little pub in Temple Bar. No one in our group of 4 could remember where it was. I said “Wait!!!! I have it on my camera!”  The three looked at me like I was silly. I said “No, wait. I took a picture of the dog on the sidewalk.” Again, the look of “Oh, like the dog is still there?!” I showed them the picture and then they understood. The picture of the sidewalk/curb in front of the pub.

It was well worth the effort! EVERYTHING was well worth the effort. The staff as well as the food were beyond amazing. What a GREAT day!

      Thanks for coming along! We were in Belfast for 2 days, no computer access, so I’m posting for that portion of the journey tonight.

      Hey! Thanks for stopping by! I was thinking of YOU while out at The Giants Causeway and the Rede Bridge. It was SO COLD! And windy AND rainy! We are having a wonderful time though! Glad we brought all the “cold weather stuff”!
