Streets Broad And Narrow

Yesterday was the day of walking around Dublin. Dad and Justin have been really stressed out and made driving (and traveling in general) unpleasant, to the point where yesterday was a continuation of the past couple of days and my not wanting to be involved. I am still generally irritated with how they have been handling themselves, but it looks as though things have started to calm down a bit.

In any case, it was an okay day; Mom, I think, just wanted a day of the four of us wandering around Dublin, which we did for an hour or two after Justin had run off and explored a bit on his own. We walked down Grafton Street; and into the chamber of the Irish House of Lords, which is now part of the Bank of Ireland in College Green. We could walk into the Bank of Ireland and wander into the House of Lords room itself, which was neat. We walked over Ha'Penny Bridge, where we were rained upon (again) so we decided that it was time for a break, and found a crêperie. (Yum, so good! Mom used to make crêpes for Lent - plain, with butter, sugar, and lemon juice, which is the type I had.)
