Howth with Peterson’s

For our last adventure before team Peterson boards an Icelandic air flight home tomorrow we are headed to Howth to hang out on the beach for the day. We were Out the door on the train a bit after 10:00 to Howth. We took the LUAS to Westmoreland, walked a bit to Tara DART station where we took the DART to the end at Howth. Our last trip to Howth was in September of last year shortly after arrival. It was one of our first trips around Ireland.

First stop at Howth was the public toilets on the other side of the harbor a bit past the kids play area. After draining all of our bladders we walked out the east pier. It was super windy on top of the pier. We had to keep the from the edge afraid they might blow over into the water. Wearing a backpack acting as a sail I was walking with my back turned to the side from the wind – wow it was windy. Great walk out.

The kids had fun playing while we sat in the shade eating our sandwiches. From the play area we slow walked back to the Dart station where the beach access is and hung out on the beach for a few hours watching the kids play and tide go out.
