Pic from the Boyne Bash!

I love my little boat. Tangerine.


Myself, Paddy and a few others in the kayak club went to the Italian alps kayaking in the spring. It was one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. I was constantly in awe of the green and snowy mountains, the rivers and the heat! I was sad to leave. The kayaking was epic, challenging to say the least...

Happy Canada Day

Boyne River Bashed.....

God I'm so tired. We paddled from 11am till about 5 something. My back is in bits, my fingers and nose are sore, even my hair hurts. It was great fun though. Being one of the (um) less amazing paddlers there I learned a lot! I hope someone took photos. In the absence of any cool ones to put up myself, I'll share this with you....

Una and I DJ'd at the Trinity Ball... How fun!! Our tent was empty at the start but was packed pretty soon after we started playing. That was definitely the most fun I've ever had behind the dex.

Dargle 1, Sarah 0

(not me)

The Dargle kicked my ass yesterday.
The River Dargle (Irish: An Deargail, meaning little red spot) rises in the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland on the northern slopes of Djouce Mountain and flows over the highest waterfall in Ireland, falling 121m (398 feet) at Powerscourt Waterfall.
Needless to say, we did NOT paddle the Powerscourt section, rather the bit after the falls that starts out nice and friendly then ends up teaching me a lesson or two. Admittedly I was not on form yesterday but it's no excuse. Bring on a rematch. (once my poor bruised knuckles (and ego) heal.)

BOXTY Hourrah!!

I was doing potato printing the other night and decided to make use of all the little cut off bittys and make Boxty! We used too much flour but all in all they were fairly average (to quote Paddy)
There was definite potential though.

so pretty

Ah Recession

The "R" word. So hot right now. In this time of beg, borrow or steal that we're entering I have to hope that the wonderful Free Trade option on is going to get really really popular. I've used it loads of times, to get and give away useless crap that no-one would pay for in their right minds.
This post, so far, is my favorite though, not useless at all.
A lovely pink hat - FREE!

Abraham's Mine

We took a much needed walk up the hills to Abrahams Mine the other day. It was a great trek full of tunnel exploring, mud stomping, dog chasing and chocolate eating. Plus the tower is cool!


Cool Boat

Look at the cool boat that was in Scotsman's bay the other day!

I've started knitting again (inspired by my excellent knit-tastic cousin Em). I had a little lesson yesterday in class by the lovely Ann and now I'm casting on, knitting and purling like a mad thing! It's great!

College madness!!

Wow, time flies when you're having all of the fun!! The first half of my college year has just rocketed by. Tomorrow is the last day of class (and the Xmas Student Social).

We've been working on a big project that encompasses all of the aspects of the course: photography, painting, drawing, design, metal work and multimedia. I've been doing my whole project on birds; crows and chickens so far with the occasional seagull thrown in for good measure. Someone once told me that birds are bad luck but I say hooey to that. I love birds! They're so graceful and mischievous at the same time. We have crows and seagulls in the backyard who don't get along. It's our own little ornithological soap opera.
(the crows always win by the way)
