We began at Charles Fort, which is a fort that was build to protect the Irish harbour from the Spanish and the French landing there. We walked down into town where the bus picked us up and drove us to Garretstown beach where unbelievably the students went swimming--willingly. Crazy. But of all the days, today was the perfect day to go. The weather was gorgeous; a sunny 19 degrees. I finally took my rain jacket off after a week of being in Ireland!! We only stayed on the beach for about an hour and headed back into town to get some fish & chips at the world famous Dino's. I obviously don't eat things that swim, but still enjoyed the fabulous chips with some chicken instead.
I was a little bit tired when we got back home, but managed to get some work done for the rest of the week. Another day of teaching tomorrow.
