Once upon a time my son would be waiting for me to unlock the front door in the mornings so he could call for his friends. Now it's down to me to persuade him to go out, which is why I have been feeling apprehensive about the next few months. But I'm pretty determined, and so we began the long school break with a visit to Dalkey, an urban village on the south side of the city. It wasn't a day trip really, and we had planned to climb Killiney Hill, but that will have to wait for another day. Still, it was a great start to the summer. Only another 90 odd days to go...
|Just spotted the sea...|
|The view on the way up. Where is the sun?|
|The view on the way down. Getting better!|
|We met this beautiful Swiss White Shepherd, and his lovely owner. |
I think he's escaped from Narnia.
|Somewhere for lunch, lovely but not a budget choice.|
Are there any cheap eateries in Dalkey?
