Malahide Castle through a #pinhole

Scene: four people on a train headed to Howth (Dublin),  chit-chitchatting

Lorraine: Did we get on the wrong train? I think we just passed Howth.

Brendan: Damn, yes it looks like we got on the wrong train. Well we can just go to Malahide Castle instead.

Turns to Monica and Rafael, Disappointed. Is this OK?

Me: Um. We are going to a freakin’ castle. I’ve never been to a castle before. I think it’s OK.

End scene.

OK, the conversation probably didn’t go down exactly like that. But still. Ireland is crawling with castles. It was awesome to see a few of them, including this one.

Here is a pinhole photo of Malahide Castle. You can read more about its complicated history it over on Pinhole Obscura, if you would like to learn more.

100 days project

And with this post I have reached the end of my 2016 100 days  project! It has been a fun ride, as always. I am looking forward to bit of a blogging break to focus on other, non computery things. Like training for a half marathon! I plan to check in here a couple times a week. as per my usual blogging schedule. Maybe I will even blog about how my running is going. 🙂
