Pet sitting in Greystones, Ireland

Now we are on the other side of Ireland in a place called Greystones, County Wicklow.  We are taking care of two sweet kitties and two hens. pandy facenetpearly face netchickens netI love kitty cats and these two are very sweet and want to spend time in your lap purring.

We are also about an hour by public transportation from Dublin. Greystones dart bw netWe have been mostly hanging out at home, using the bus to get our food to cook.  But we did go to Dublin one day.  We took a student tour of Trinity College which was very good. Afterwards we went to see the Book of Kells exhibit.  It is a 9th-century book of the four Gospels, with almost every page highly illustrated.book of kells netAfter seeing the exhibit we went up to the Long Room library.  “The main chamber of the Old Library is the Long Room; at nearly 65 metres in length, it is filled with 200,000 of the Library’s oldest books and is one of the most impressive libraries in the world.” ( Trinity College site)

Notice the ladders, this is the top floor of the 2 story Long Room

We walked down Grafton Street to look at the shops and heard this lovely singer entertaining as people strolled by.

She had a great voice

We are close to the ocean here in the house and have made a short trip to a town nearby Dun Laoghaire to see the seaside city.  We walked along the harbor.Ireland rocky shores 5x7 netDun Laoghaire cannon 5x7 netblue mosaic 5x7 net

The weather has been Irish.  It is sunny for about two hours and then the dark clouds and the rain wash in.  So we keep our umbrellas handy.
