Wholesome family activity

Dot writes: on Sunday we took the boys to Howth and did the cliff walk. It’s the first time we’ve done it with them, as the path is unfenced and in places runs next to a scary drop to the rocks and sea. But we decided they were now sensible enough not to fling themselves merrily off it.


Hugh went for comfort and mud-proofing – tracksuit bottoms and wellies – but Frank had his red skinny jeans and funky new Skechers shoes.


It’s hard to tell from the photo, but there were crackly panes of ice in this puddle.

Refreshments at the end. The walk took us more than an hour and a half, which is quite a long time for five-year-old legs. Hugh is helping Frank with his crisps.

      Frank is very generous about sharing. Actually we were rather cross with Hugh for gobbling up all his own snack and then moving on to his brother’s. There was also a large skinny Great Dane who kept poking her head hopefully over the back of the bench in the hope of also sharing Frank’s crisps – poor Frank!

      It was quite long so the boys might take a bit of persuading to do it again, but I’m sure we will! It’s a beautiful route.
