Last day in Dublin... for now, anyway...

 Today was a busy day!  The Smiths and Hutsons went with Scott this morning to look at an apartment to let, leaving me and Denise with Davis, Bailey, and baby Ashlyn.  Our assignment: get from the Karnes' house in Baldoyle to to the McGuire's house in Glenageary by 1pm for lunch.  So, with Davis pushing the stroller, we headed to the DART to catch the 11:55am southbound train.

We were greeted at the ticket counter by a very nice lad who commented on our accents and advised us on the cheapest way to get where we going.  Bailey candidly got a photograph of our new friend, who happened to be quite good-looking and could very likely be the elusive Liam McAwesome.  Denise agreed.  

It took us about 45 minutes and 21 stops, but we made it to Glenageary all in one piece!

Esther made us a delicious lunch and then we headed out their backyard and up Killiney Hill.  From the top you can see all of Dublin, including Enya's castle and Bono lives nearby!  We looked for him on the way.  We didn't see him.  We spent a couple hours on the hill, taking pictures, watching the ocean, and enjoying the sunshine.

Late afternoon we headed back up to Dundrum, a big mall close to the Coffey's house.  We ate some fish and chips, drank some IrnBru (yuck!), and then made our way to Tony and Leslie's to spend some time in fellowship with members of the Ranelagh Church.  We had lots of tea and lots of chatting, followed by some praying, more chatting, and a group photo.  The church is so supportive of our team and vision.  I am so excited about our partnership with them!

I leave Dublin in the morning.  I can't wait to be with my family... and Dakota!  I will be eating one last piece of peanut butter pie for breakfast in the morning.

  1. can't believe you equated IrnBru with "yuck" - gutted!
