Blackrock North and the Ferry Home, County Louth and the Irish Sea - 27th December 2015

It's the day after Boxing Day/St. Stephen's Day and we're off to the other Blackrock, close to Dundalk, County Louth and the border with Northern Ireland, and which James and Haryanna - former residents of the other Blackrock near Dublin - have moved to. After that, it's time to get Thai takeaway from Blackrock South before catching the ferry back home at stupid o'clock the following morning.
