The bikers have their space, the buses have theirs. They are so narrow I am glad I am riding the bus.

Note the rainbow and the raindrops. This was our view on the train ride home from church. Yes, we had our umbrellas.

The DART trains are clean and bright. Very few passengers Sunday afternoon.

Here is Dublin Bay, looking south from the DART as we travel the 25 minutes by train to Bray.

The DART is above ground all the way. We have to cross over the bridge to get on the side for the trip to Bray. Last Sunday the train was there but we were on the wrong side. We missed it and waited 25 minutes for the next train.

Kurt is sitting with our trolley as we wait for the DART Sunday morning.

We were delighted to arrive just ahead of the DART train rather than just after it has left Sunday morning.

Apparently I am not the only one who has to learn which way to look before crossing the road.

The double decker bus is wonderful. I try to get on top at the front whenever I can. Lots of people ride the buses so they come frequently, except on Sunday.

We catch the bus directly across the street from the Stake Center. It couldn't get much closer. We take two buses and the total travel time is about 75 minutes.

The Dublin Stake Center is surrounded by a beautiful wrought iron fence. Here we gathered for General Conference broadcast.

Front yards on this street are small. Note the stone wall which is against the sidewalk and the limited space for the cars.

Narrow road and sidewalk we share with parked cars as we walk to Kurt's office.

Stone wall, autumn leaves, and the path for the 15 minute walk from Kurt's office.

This is our electric fireplace. We can close off all the doors to the living room, turn on the fireplace, and we are soon warm and cozy.

Our combination washer and dryer takes about 2 1/2 hours for the wash cycle and another 2 1/2 hours for the dry cycle. This way we can do laundry three or four days a week.
Can you find the refrigerator and freezer?

View from our living room window. This is Linden Square.
