A last blast of summer today when the blue sky and the sun came out - Dublin was basking in sunshine. After the hectic day yesterday with my Mum's birthday party, we celebrated Roma's birthday today with a nice lunch at Chez Max beside Dublin Castle. Afterwards we wandered around the city centre - Grafton Street had some great buskers and entertainers out. We finished up in St Stephen's Green where there was a display by the Irish Archaeological Society. I couldn't resist taking up an replica medieval axe and getting Roma to take a photo, in honour of Pink Floyd and the name of this web site. And yes, I was careful with that axe! I also picked up a painting of one of my heroes, Antarctic explorer Tom Crean, from a street seller in Grafton St (the painting is on the bench behind me in the photo below).
