EDIT: I see now that the video got corrupted while uploading so I've replaced it with a working version.
But there have been a few (damn few ) days when a person would feel like leaving the
Way back in April (which is really more spring isn't it? ) it was down to Kilmore Quay in Wexford.
The big attraction was the Guillemot lightship, which had been turned into a maritime museum.
Unfortunately, the ship had been vandalized, deemed no longer safe, and cut up for scrap.
Also unfortunately, the websites listing this attraction had not been updated to reflect this.
But still, had a nice lunch, a stroll along the strand, and a look at the boats in the harbour. So it wasn't a complete loss.

Next up was the MCVI show in May
Naturally there were plenty of vehicle to look at.
But there were also several re-enactors who were fully kitted out in period uniforms.

And finally on the June Bank holiday it was the cliff walk in Ardmore, Co. Waterford.
And absolutely perfect day - bright sunshine to keep you warm, a breeze to cool you off, and gorgeous scenery.
Armore has a couple of claims to fame, first being the site of Saint Declan's monastery. So there are numerous religious ruins.
Another is the wreck of The Samson, a crane barge the ran aground on the foot of the cliffs.

Today (Sunday) was also a pretty good day, though there was reason to stay at home. (More on that later.) Tomorrow isn't looking too bad either....
But after that the rains return.
