Saturday at Howth by Ann Treacy

Saturday was the longest day of our lives! We were all tired. Lily had been to a sleepover party the night before. We left the house around 1:00 – before we ate lunch. We took a bus from the house to Dun Laoghaire, which was about 30 minutes. Then we took the DART (train) from Dun Laoghaire to Howth.

The unfortunate detail about HOwth is that the pier is 15-20 feet about the water – and there is no fence or anything to keep a naughty 3 year old from jumping right in.
