After we returned from Germany on November 15, Mom and Dad spent one more week in Ireland before heading back to the US. They made several trips into City Centre to shop and soak up that last bit of Irish culture. One evening we had a small get together at our apartment with a few tasty snacks. [Our friend Colin came up with a new name for sausage balls--meat scones.] I am pictured below in extreme hostess mode.
I took the Friday of that week off work (Nov 20) and was thrilled when the day dawned (and continued) sunny and clear. I really wanted to take Mom and Dad to one of my favorite spots–the beautiful views in Dalkey, and we had the perfect day. After lunch at Nosh we walked to the coast and then climbed the hill in Sorrento Park park (guided by a cute cat). After a stop by a pub to warm up and refresh, we met Bill in town for a trip to Leo Burdock’s for some tasty fish and chips.
