Sandycove beach

Our second walk last Sunday was to Sandycove. I've never seen the place so packed. There were cars everywhere - double-yellow lines, footpaths, corners. Complete Irish madness. And the Gardai were doing nothing about it. We saw a guard on a bike and a squad car going by. But they didn't bat an eyelid. I can imagine how frustrating this must be for residents in the area. There was no way that a firetruck would have been able to go through some of the streets near the James Joyce tower.

Good citizens that we are, we parked the car a little distance from the seafront, and walked. It was cool in the breeze, but that beach always seems to be sheltered (the best spot is on the wall facing South, but all those spots were taken).

After queuing for an icecream, we found a nice bench overlooking the sea, and we spent a very pleasant half hour people watching.
