My journey home from work...

So, it is a beautiful Friday evening here in Dublin, and as always I'm thrilled skinny to be out of work and heading into the weekend! I had my little digital camera sitting beside me in the car so thought I would shoot my journey home from Baggot Street to Kimmage on Dublin's leafy southside...of course, I was careful and a lot of the shots I didn't even know what I was taking so excuse the very bad pictures and the blurryness - you'll get the general vibe tho (hopefully)!!

Starting off on Lower Mount Street...



Piebald horse with cart and tourists!



Up Merrion Street...



Both corners of Merrion and Baggot Streets...





Corner of Leeson St and Fitzwilliam Street Upper..



Adelaide Road...are you bored??



Approaching Portobello Bridge (over the Grand Canal) towards Rathmines...



Rathmines Village..





Leinster Road...



Kenilworth Park...almost there!



Getting closer...more modest housing you might note!!



Ooops quick detour to Donnybrook Fair for my bottle of Provo Reggio (a delicious Portuguese Sauv Blanc)...it's Friday afterall!



The little park beside my house...



My little street...



The front door...



My welcome home...two very excited and newly groomed woofers...awww...



Some gorgeous evening light..



And my glass of wine....ah..bliss..



Hope you enjoyed the trip - it's a nice drive (tho I should be on my bike...only a few more weeks before I don't have a choice on that one!)...just so you know, it is 3 miles (about 5k I think) and takes me about 20minutes - hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

Oh, I miss Dublin! I visited once a couple years back for a family wedding on Dave's side, and loved it.
