The weather in Dublin was absolutely stunning yesterday, so we grabbed our chance and took the Dart out to Howth. Our goal was to do the cliff walk; before we’ve always made for Howth summit. As is usual for us these days, it took much longer to get ready than it should have. We don’t have a proper baby carrier at the moment, although we’ve just ordered this one, a Bushbaby, from little trekkers, so we were using our stalwart baby bjorn which Hugh is way too big for. I carried a backpack to provide a counter-balance and it all went fine. Anyway, working all this out and getting it together in one place took longer than it should have. We missed a train in Killiney just as we reached the station and had to wait 23 minutes for the next one and the journey takes an hour, meaning it was after 12 before we got to Howth. By this time, the sun was really hot and we realised that we didn’t have any suncream for Hugh so we had to wander round Howth a bit asking where to buy that. Then we had to feed Hugh
In the end it was after 1:30 before we actually got walking.
