a view from the bus…and this was only the beginning of the afternoon! I gather a million people must have been there today (well, it says that over 500,000 were expected)
I really had to laugh when I discovered that the Old Sails I was meant to see were actually brand new Tall Ships! I crossed England on a misunderstanding…Typical, shall you say!
Well, I don’t regret it a minute because they are wonderful to watch and all Ireland seems to have been in agreement with me on this. I even saw Hitchcock’s Life Boat in the gardens of the City Hall and met, as usual, some wonderful people everywhere.
I almost lost my hotel key and was rescued by a charming family who found it and gave it back to me, and a nice gentleman did the same with my hair bow which had decided to sail away from me.
The food market was a lot of fun thanks to a team of irresistible transvestite for one day who not only sold their food but also their act!
Anyhow, I let you enjoy the sight of these new nevertheless magnificent tall ships
this is how I discovered my mistake…;-)

the projected had of the quays looks like a ship…the devil is in the detail!
map of part of the fun! it’s Pandora’s box, a festival hosting many festivals 😉
Amazing that you could still decide to board the ship at the very latest moment…for a couple hundred bucks!
that’s who you should contact, but hurry, I saw people registering!
a memorial site…
getting ready for the Parade!
Ach, the Irish can’t help it…! I was actually marvelling that God was not in sight anywhere…!
Ach, the Irish can’t help it…!
