Reflections: A Day at Glendalough, County Wicklow, Ireland - 3rd November 2007

The day after Iz's birthday, Nosher, Iz and Noddy head over in the hire car to Glendalough - about 45 minutes away in County Wicklow, south of Dublin. Apart from the hordes of tourists, it's a peaceful spot, featuring monastic ruins and a couple of placid lakes. The colours are excellent, thanks to the autumnal trees covering the surrounding hills.
