Seapoint Co Dublin : June 2009 Holiday at Home!

This year we spent our holidays at home, or should I say from home as we took outings almost every day. We had wonderful dry sunny weather and so really enjoyed a lot of what Ireland has to offer, using our home as a base.


First day trip was to the coast south of Dublin city, to Seapoint. This is quite near to DunLaoghaire and is easily accessed by bus or train. This is a lovely beach with plenty of rockpools, and is a very popular swimming beach.

More Paris Pictures

As it's summer time, there's not much knitting or crafting being done, and so to keep the blog going I'll post some of my summer photos. And so more of Paris -



A window in Printemps department store. All of the windows were themed with various coloured large Plastic Rabbits. Some even on the footpath/pavement. More of those later. Certainly eye-catching!

View from the top of The Grande Arche at La Defense. Absolutely amazing! That's the Champs Elysee straight down the middle.

Can't you see what really great weather we had. It was great.
