Homeward bound...

Well, with some resistance, we eventually pulled up in our queue for the Dun Laoghaire bound ferry, and after a short wait, we drove on board.  Birdy found herself placed among some real grannies, and she was the baby for once!! Her engine was like a kitten purring beside these growlers!
The short sailing home was uneventful, and quiet... Our funds had expired over a cooked breakfast this morning, and so with barely enough for a shared cup of tea, we had little to do but talk about our trip and how, although it felt like forever since we had left, it had flown by! 
Its hard to believe we won't be unpacking the van tonight, folding down our comfy bed and waking up to another new day.... in another new place.... with the open road ahead and the world at our feet...

Welcome back. I was so excited to see the sites that you shared and the food. I'm glad you are home safe and that you all had a fantastic time.

Welcome home. For me and maybe you, there is no home coming to our little island like coming home into Dub Laoghaire harbour. What an adventure you had!

I can't believe you're home! I miscalculated and thought you'd be another week! Haven't been near a computer since Thurs. Imagine my suprise and delight!

TALK TOMORROW! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I mean Dun Laoghaire, of course. But the aul' Dub is great too.

ha ha emma! I didn't see that - very fitting slip since Dub is also a word for vw (vee DUB el yoooo) - all the cool kids call them dubs... thats why we don't!

CIARA! Dying to see you all, and tell you the stuff I couldn't put on here! xxx
