Halloween Social Cycle around the Coast to Dun Laoghaire 31/10/10
We continued along the Coastal Road all the way to Dun Laoghaire/ Dun Leary/ Formerly Kingstown back when before Independence and changed back to Dun Laoghaire. This Town is very Sedate very much like Brighton in England full of the Grand Old Houses of the Wealthy Elite back in the Day but now for a Grand part turned into Apartments.
It was too early for Lunch being it only 11.50 am so we went to the Peoples Park and Strolled around looking at the Sunday Market then took Photo's. Then we went about 3 - 4 Km 2miles up the Road to Dalky and Bulloch Harbour and more Photo's and looked at the Seals the Rocks and the Sea and Sky then eventually had Lunch in a small Café in Dalky Village.
On the way back we stopped of at the Jame's Joyce Martello Tower of Ulysse's Fame and had a look at the Forty Foot Bathing Spot, then continued along the Coastal Route back to Dun Laoghaire then eventually back to Ballsbridge and said our Goodbyes to each other on a very Enjoyable Day out. It was still only 3.30pm so I said to them I was going up to the Dublin Flea on Newmarket Square thinking that they might want to tag along but no they decided to go Home.
So I went off into the City and Kevin Street beside St Patricks Cathedral then Dean Street and then New Row South then into Newmarket Square and had a Browse around the Stalls but did not buy anything. I had a look at Bespoke Cyclery and a Leather Saddle they had for Sale and expressed my Interest but held off buying it until another time perhaps then headed Home.
I got back Home and it still was only 4.45pm it was getting Dark because of the Clocks going back the Night before.
