We went for a walk on Sandymount strand yesterday afternoon. It was colder and darker than we had expected, but it was still nice to get a bit of fresh air. Despite the traffic - It seems that no matter where you're going these days, there are traffic jams awaiting you at every corner. Apparently an Irish minister on a recent trip to Moscow equated traffic jams with economic success and likened Moscow with Dublin on that count. Needless to say, the media are giving him a hard time over that comment!
The tide was out and the clouds made for a dramatic sky. The sun was shining over Howth on the other side of the bay.
