Walk to the Old Town
(Summary blog only. Last full blog was Day 0368).
We are fast approaching the end of our wedding-based sojourn to the UK. So today was our last full day on this side of the Irish Sea and we spent much of it working on some domestic maintenance and admin issues. In the afternoon, one of our family members dropped round to see us and pick up some things, and to say goodbyes before he headed back to Canada.
Later in the afternoon, I wrote a brief paper on Carbon Capture and Storage for an organisation in Ireland, and joined a beta test of a new mapping app, which I am very much looking forward to trying out.
Finally, in the evening a friend in the Old Town invited us down for dinner, and as alcohol was likely to feature on the menu, we elected to walk down. It worked out very well and it was wonderful to catch up with someone we haven’t seen for a while. The return back up the hill was uneventful, although pitch black!
We have a long drive to Holyhead and onwards to Ireland tomorrow. But looking forward to getting back!
