Skerries (and Dublin)

Mon 23-Feb 04	Dublin  - visited Skerries

It was a beautiful fine day today in Dublin and relatively mild, so we decided to head North to Skerries for a wander along the beach.  We took a few photos through Dublin on our way to the bus stop too - things that we'd seen dozens of time before but never bothered photographing.  It took about 1 1/4 hours to get to Skerries on the bus, during which time it became overcast and dull and then cleared up again (just like Auckland weather really)!

We had a really nice relaxing time out at Skerries, just walking along the beach, with views of 3-4 small islands in the bay), a Martello Tower, lighthouses etc.  A nice stroll in the sun.

After a bite to eat we wandered up to the Skerries Mills for a few photos and a nosey at the gift store before heading back into Dublin to the Movies ("The Last Samurai", filmed in Taranaki, New Zealand).
