Greystones Hike

Greystones to Bray. A beautiful 5 mile hike. Technically closed -- but, as you can clearly see below, the signs notifying hikers are very ambiguous (as are both of the tall metal fences along the path).

Valentine's Day 2009

Valentine's Day in Dublin. Scavenger hunt from Herbert Park to St. Stephen's Green. Dinner at the Lobster Pot. Also McDonalds. Saw "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". Kicked my brand new soccer ball around the park. Threw the frisbee. And got free bread from the bread delivery guy from Johnston Mooney & O'Brien when he pulled his truck over, jumped out, handed us two loaves and asked if we'd feed the two gianst swans that we were watching, as he wouldn't have time today.
