While in Ireland, we spent a few days in Dun Laoghaire, just a short DART ride away from Dublin.
There are two expansive piers that reach out into the waters, extending the already beautiful coastal walk.
We were blessed again with amazing weather. Ireland apparently took a break from months of rain to give us almost an entire week of sunny days.
Pretty as a postcard, the boats on the water.
There were so many birds along the pier and in the water - apparently Dun Laoghaire is a great place for bird watching.
On a clear day, you can see Howth from the shores of Dun Laoghaire.
Birds weren't the only cuteness swimming in the water...
Nick posing in a background so picturesque it looks almost I superimposed him into the shot. You can see the James Joyce museum in the background - unfortunately it was closed while we were in town, though.
Walking on water is allowed in Dun Laoghaire, and recommended so as to avoid the jagged rocks below.
The saddest part of our trip to Dun Laoghaire was that Nick never did figure out how to get off that rock. Clearly he missed the "Walking on water permitted" sign. Oh well. The honeymoon was fun while it lasted.
