Recently friends came over from Dresden for a weekend. To entertain them a bit we brought them to Bray to walk to Greystones and the next day to the fish market in Howth. The day in Bray was wonderful, I enjoyed the silence, the nature, the absence of insects. The flip side of it was that I got sunburned – worse than ever in the past 10 years. I followed the lobster pattern: red – peel – white. It took more than a week to get back to normal.
Nevertheless, Bray is beautiful. So, when I am back home, the weather is sunny and warm, when there aren’t any duties and Jim and I aren’t too lazy then I want to go there again for a pick-nick – even though it just sounds like it’s never going to happen under these *difficult* circumstances. The walk to Greystones was terrific for about 80% of the distance. As there are many building works going on related to the re-newed Greystones port, the last bit of the walk is odd – along building fences and far away from the sea. It might be a better idea next time to start in Greystones and to walk back to Bray.
Howth on a Sunday is just beautiful, although Jim and I seem to get really lazy – it usually starts with random snacks at the fish market, followed by buying fresh fish at the mongers and ending having oysters and a pint in the Bloody Stream before heading back to Dublin. This time we were just a bit better by walking up to the town, challenged by trying to avoid the sun as I was already glowing pink in the dark – being sunburned sucks!
Anyways, some nice shots attached.
