One of the pleasures of my life is being able to sit outside on our deck of
The day's work is done, dinner eaten, the weather is warm and dry, a breeze
gentle. The birds are busy getting ready to roost, colours are subduing. To
sit quietly with a beer or glass of wine and watch the birds, look at the garden
and enjoy the antics of the cats is my idea of a perfect way to finish a day.

Anyway, we stayed in the Hotel So, in Cashel Street. It is a new and trendy place, with a dinky little car outside as an advertising gimmick.
The rooms all have 'mood' lighting, and ours was completely interior, with no outside window! It did have a mirror across one wall and behind the door, so the image repeated to infinity was possible.
We didn't have a car, so we walked, and fortunately, we were close to a very nice restaurant zone, the Avon, the Square, and just a few blocks from the Arts Centre, Museum, and Art Gallery - what more could you want?
Desiree was very taken with these planter boxes

These two were promoting a 'Festival of Flowers'
In this area of the City there are also a number of impressive pieces of sculpture:
