We’re over in Dublin. Popped over for a long weekend (Eirene is hanging around a bit longer). Just been into the city this morning with Eirene’s dad. Eirene’s dad is a great bloke to wander round Dublin with. A great font of local knowledge. A few stories that wouldn’t hit the standard tourist literature thrown in for good measure.
Bought an Ordinance Servay Ireland map of Dublin and the surrounding area. Since my last post I’ve got hooked on Geocache hunting. I’ve found 8 now. It’s fascinating. Some are REALLY hard. One in particular has totally stumped me – Stovold’s Revenge very near our house. The co ordinates get you close, then there’s a puzzle that seems very cryptic – loads of clues I just don’t get the references to. Other caches have been quite easy – each one is a proper buzz when you find the cache though. I’ve taken the boys out for a couple of hunts as well (just happened to be two quite tricky ones – one where we got eaten alive by midgies and mozzys!)
Just plotted out a few in Dublin that I’d like to try (mainly in Marley Park). There’s loads round here. I heart maps.
