SANDYCOVE ROOM WITH VIEW

P1010689aI took this photo just after the sun came up on October 6, 2013.  It was the day I left Ireland and returned home.  When I stay with my friends in Sandycove, County Dublin, they put me in the room at the top of the house, which was originally probably a room for the maids or other servants.  This is the view out the window, looking west.  The brick building in the lower right is the mews…where each of the terrace houses had their horses and carriage (and probably where the coachman slept).  These have all been turned into apartments of sorts, so that there is a long narrow garden between the house and the mews.  I like sleeping up there since they got their roof insulated a couple of years ago.  Before that, it was VERY cold except in summer.  You can look out the window from your bed and see what the day is going to be like.
