A day when flipflops were worn

Sea kayaking in the harbour, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

and indecent amounts of flesh were exposed. Comfortably.
Another scorcher of a day (almost reached the mid twenties, I kid you not!)

A day for basking in the sun.

For those not locked up in the Mistake Factory…

Still, Pepe kindly agreed to do a babysit at short notice and Mrs mememe2U and I went for a quick paddle around the harbour at dusk.

All rather lovely.

Once Mrs mememe2U stopped sulking.

A day when shorts were worn

Walkers basking in the sun on the pier in Dun Laoghaire

comfortably!

A day when t-shirts were paraded.
Without pain!

A day when the GoosePimpleOMeter* recorded no positive hits on the pier! (Except perhaps for the Italian guy and the three Spanish girls who briefly unzipped their North Pole anoraks to reach for their wallet – but it doesn’t count).

A day when the thermometer hit a dizzying 23 degrees (Celsius!)
In the shade!!! (Met Eireann usually go by the temperature in the sunlight, under a looking glass, to con us into thinking that we live in a country with a near-Mediterranean climate, and no windchill)

Somehow I doubt that it will be enough to convince Mrs Raheny to pack away the winter duvet.

It’s going to be a sweat-fest for me tonight.

And it won’t be from the passion…

Sunny in Dun Laoghaire, I know, it’s weird, isn’t it?
