Visit Dublin

Today’s walk took me up the road, in Warrenmount,  past the flower shop and St. Patricks Cathedral.  Flowers still bloom in gardens here.

The spire of St. Patrick’s Cathedral points its nose above the shorter buildings.

It’s said that Saint Patrick himself baptized people using a well or spring that used to be here. That was back in the fifth century. The church dates back to the 12th century, and has the tallest spire in all of Ireland.

Continuing up the street, one comes to a local art shop that’s great fun to pop into for a look around. The art here is affordable and made locally.

Next door is an antique shop of old timepieces and clocks.

Next comes my favorite florist in this neighborhood.
