Geocaching, Stuff


It’s certainly spring/summer here – this pair of swans were tending to a flock of gorgeous fluffy cygnets by the canal in Dublin on Saturday morning.

Saturday’s geocaching adventure with Cristina bagged not only 4 caches, but we also saw a large number of Phoenix Park’s new resident deer. Absolutely gorgeous! Not long afterwards the heavens opened up and we get a taste of the European Monsoon – yes, monsoon. As in wet like you wouldn’t believe. This isn’t your normal Irish namby-pamby soft stuff, this is rain that would feel quite at home in Australia. With 2km of walking an no shelter we were soon resembling drowned kittens. While most taxis avoided us – hello? it’s water not the plague – one finally stopped to pick us up and it was home to try to get dry.

My iPod however seemed to be a little worse for wear and would not turn on at all. I’ve had it sitting in a bowl of rice all day, it seems to be responding a little now although it’s still not perfect yet… fingers crossed!
