    ... Redhead Convention. A few years ago I would have qualified as a red head, or at least a bit of a ginger bearded boy. Nowadays the colour is waning.

And I just love it. Thank you Dingle and all our new friends. Erin and I will remember you forever. Forever By Dingle Shore I ...

    ... fountain, surrounded by lovely green lawns and classical-style statues. I think it borrows a lot from the Boboli Gardens in Florence. And there are rose and wildflower gardens along the side, as well as a folly, a Japanese garden, a pet cemetery, and a beautiful view of the Wicklow Mountains. The pet cemetery is quite sweet, and even includes a couple of cows.

    The weather, unfortunately, made the whole experience less enjoyable than it could have been. It is ...
