Taking the day off to enjoy Dublin with my nieces.
Maybe afternoon tea at the Shelbourne Hotel (a grande dame which I’m a bit disappointed to note is now a Marriott). Or maybe poor-man’s tea at Bewley’s.
Maybe poking around Christ Church and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, wondering why the Church of Ireland, which had relatively few members compared to the R.C.’s, felt entitled to grab the beautiful old churches.
Maybe looking at the Book of Kells and thinking about what it must have been like to be one of those civilization-saving monks back in the day.
Anyway, back on Monday, with some posts about the Ireland trip.
