Howth it going? and Easter Sunday

Nicole, Trygve, Richard & I all went to Easter Services at St. Patrick's and heard their beautiful choir. It was a nice start to the day and was nice to see St. Patrick's Park in such gorgeous weather.

We finally made it out to Howth! It's at the North end of the DART line and we've been wanting to go since we arrived. They have a market on Sundays with farmers' produce, crepes, and craft items. Some GLGers met us there and it was a pretty good day. We saw seals playing in the harbor, enjoyed possibly the best weather we've had so far in Dublin and had a pint at the local pub, the Bloody Stream. Legends say that it got it's name from when the Vikings landed and the captain of the Viking ship told his crew whoever touch land first could have the land. One member of the crew cut off his own hand and threw it ashore ensuring he would be the first to touch land. Yummy!

Check out our pictures of the Howth seals and Richard frolicking in the Spring blossoms!

We had so much fun with our Norwegian visitors. I can't wait to go to Norway soon!
