Roses abound around the cottage

This fellow stopped Kathy, Eric and Ilsa to greet them and
tell us about
his daughter who just moved back to Ireland from the U.S.
Kathy and Ilsa discuss something outside the Pub
Gay Pride festival that day in Dublin, but they did not seem too gay. Many posers and drunk kids.
We were tired after a long day of walking Dublin. It was a
while until our bus, so
Kathy and I stopped in to St Ann's Church to look around and sit awhile.
We happened on a rehearsal for a concert. The soprano was singing Ave Maria as we entered.
