A large wedge of cash used to buy the campervan. Wonga!
A Weekend in County Dublin, Ireland - 31st July 2010
It's over to the Vicinity of Blackrock in Co. Dublin again for a day. Isobel and The Boy have been over for a week already, and Nosher rocks up on the Friday night. The day after a stop off for a couple of jars of Guinness, we meander over to Greystones via Bray, and then on to a walk in Devil's Glen.
