Val was working at the museum today so once she’d departed, I drove down to Baldoyle to pick up three friends from the Walking Club then we drove out together to Castletown House.
We enjoyed a good walk and chat (of course) round the grounds, then returned to the house’s picnic area for a late lunch. A few of us drove on after the walk to take a look at the Wonderful Barn – such an odd construction, and so under-utilised.
Another great day out, then I pottered back to Malahide via Baldoyle and then a video catch up with friends in Scotland after dinner.
