Ragged skies

Well, the sun is back, although there's clearly a lot of wind up high somewhere, as the clouds are being dragged around in the skies over Dublin. It's beautiful, really.

And I'm glad that things are looking up, weatherwise, because this weekend is my daytrip to Wales, and I am really hoping to be able to take some pictures of Dublin Bay from the water. Also, I'm childishly excited at the prospect of travelling "across the water" (how the Irish traditionally refer to Britain), even if I'm only going to be there for a couple of hours. It's a whole 'nother country! The Irish and Brits are lucky, despite their fractious history, to have each other so nearby. They can just hop to each other's countries and have the whole "going overseas" experience without having to worry about a language barrier. So much more exciting to have to take a ship than just driving across a border. Watch this space for photos and news from an Irish Ferry.

I'm not working with those kids this weekend, but I've been forwarded some interesting news by a friend. There's an arts collective in Temple Bar called Exchange Dublin and they are organising workships for kids. Which looks like a great way for me to take them there (love Exchange Dublin) and have someone else watch them while I drink coffee...
More exciting news as it happens!
