Dublin Day Two

Dublin Day two began with a hearty breakfast, much needed as the day had a full and exhausting list of activities. The coach left the White Sands Hotel shortly after 8.00am and headed for the centre of Dublin for a land and water tour of the city. The 74 year old vehicles were built in America in 1942 to assist with the D Day landings and quite incredibly are still going strong today! The amphibious experience was just unreal

After a picnic lunch and coach tour of Phoenix Par, the amazing and modernised Dublin Zoo was our next port of call. With our incredibly knowledgeable tour guide, the animals of Africa in their natural habitats were explored and enjoyed. Zebras, giraffes,elephants, great apes, monkeys, tigers and lions, to name a few, roamed happily in areas of vast land. The brand new orangutan enclosure was outstanding and well worth a visit!

The evening meal back at the Hotel was another homemade success and after tea the children enjoyed a noisy yet enjoyable game of bowling

As I type, the corridors are once again silent as the children recharge their batteries for Dublin Day three, the journey home and Tayto Park.

Still having major technical problems with putting up the now copious amounts of photographs on the website! A situation I will resolve tomorrow night on my return to the North!
