News, the occasional rant and maybe even something smart to say. If I'm going to write it down for posterity, it's going to be here.

 

40 Foot Pool

How hot is it in Ireland?

Hot enough that I was glad the train on the way home from work today had some AC. That's like...a scorching 25+ degrees today in the Fair City. Gosh I've gotten soft, been out of southern Ontario for a little too long. Anywho, today's Doodle of the Day came after a lovely swim down in Sandycove at the famous 40 Foot Pool. I busted out of work early today, whipped home and grabbed me trunks, whipped down to the DART, whipped a bit further down Dublin Bay, whipped into the water and - goodness me - I whipped back out. The Irish sea will never be 25+ degrees. Here's my quicky sketch done with a water-pen.
