A Day in Co. Dublin, Ireland - 28th February 2010

It's Nosher's first trip flying solo with The Boy - over to Dublin to meet up with Isobel who's been there since Wednesday night. Frankly, Nosher had been dreading it for a couple of days, but as it turned out The Boy was quite entertaining to travel with, and there's a certain amount of restoration of the faith in human nature as there do always seem to be people around who'll help out someone traveling alone with a baby. When we meet up, we head over to Greystones, just south along the coast, to have a spot of lunch with Philly and Davida and generally hang out on the beach for a bit. But first - a building on the Science Park in Cambridge is being demolished...
