Despite my very recent resolution about probably never going on a family outing again, I made the family go to Dalkey island off the coast of Dublin a couple of weekends ago. The weather was beautiful.
We had a picnic. We explored a bit.
We admired the view.
I didnâ€™t see the famous goats (apparently there are 5 on the island) but I did see some seals very close up and the largest rat Iâ€™ve ever seen in my life; also very close up but it moved faster than the seals which were basking on the rocks.
It was a success. More outings to come; my poor children.
