A day a Dublin…what a treat! The weather is so perfect that after our city bus tour, Chuck, Lisa, and I walked the city until 4:00. Our morning started with a tour of Trinity College where we got to see the book of Kells. No photos were allowed, so I had to buy postcards. We were allowed a brief 45 minutes to see the display and library, then we had a quick tour of the grounds before the bus took us on a 2 hour tour of the city that included a view of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Kings Bridge, and Phoenix Park. By noon, we were on our own, and after so many bus rides, we decided that walking on a sunny day was the thing to do. We had crepes for lunch, saw the Molly Malone statue (she's rumored to haunt the streets), the Oscar Wilde statue (a rare colored statue), went to the Temple Bar area, and walked along the river. We’re taking an hour rest in our rooms right now, and will head out for dinner at 6:00. Tomorrow we will once again board the ferry for our final destination: Wales. I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed.
