… and too boring for muted colours!

Massive respect to the fuchsia lady on the Dart.

Donnacha was determined to get one last rush of adrenaline before the annual lift-out tomorrow.
He was enjoying every second of this white knuckle ride as he was zooming across Dublin bay in his formula 1 of the waves.

Now that I am no longer able to go for a swim every day, I have to take an educated guess at how much the water temperature has dropped in the week just gone.
Or rather I dive in, and hope for the best.
Dipping a toe and trying to go in gradually would be just too soul-sapping.

New.

Everything was.
Everything.

Especially the tie.

The shaggin tie…

Laura loved ships. With a passion. She’d love nothing better than getting a gentle neck rub while watching ships on the horizon.
But Dave never got the hints.
Dave was mostly wondering if it would be ok to whip his smartphone out and watch the highlights of Liverpool – Manchester City.

Wow. What a day. Life is so strange outside of the Mistake Factory.
I met Carlos for lunch. We went to Kyoto for some Asian food. I went for my five lunchtime dives at the 40 Foot.
What’s new, says you? I do that at least once a week. I call it the slice of delight in my shit sandwich.
Well, the difference today is that the shit sandwich had vanished.

Thanks Carlos for the photo.

The Italian students eating their packed lunch at the Forty Foot today did not deem it a perfect day for a swim.
Others begged to differ.

Gli irlandesi sono pazzi
