Give Me A Consonant, And Another, And Another

18Jul10

Day #02

An early start to the day saw us leave our overnight stopping point Caernarfon without really having taking much of it in (sorry Caernarfon) and begin our short journey to Holyhead and onwards. Anglessey was entirely new to us so we were obviously obliged to stop off and admire, and photograph, the sign at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch on the way – and then, well, err leave.

Then the short drive across the remainder of Anglessey to Holyhead and onto the Jonathan Swift, one of Irish Ferries’ less imaginatively named fleet. The journey across the Irish Sea was uneventful, and relatively calm given the previous day’s weather, however any opportunity to relax was overshadowed by me wondering whether I had or had not left the car in gear with the handbreak on. I had.

So we arrived in Dublin, or so it said on the signage, and proceeded to spend thirty minutes traversing the more obscure regions of the laregly nondescript Dublin docks before dissappearing into a never ending tunnel (obviously it did end but you get what I mean). Eventually daylight returned and we drove the few miles, actually ignore that, we drove the few kilometres, to where we were going to spend the week, which given that we’d left home seemingly days before was a very welcome relief.
