Ha'penny Bridge

Spanning the Liffey River is the footbridge Ha'penny (the toll use to be half a penny).  Narrow and beautiful in its arching simplicty we crossed it several times in our wanderings around Dublin's O'Connell Street area.

Notice the absence of tall buildings. It is this way in all of Ireland.

WOW, I fell in love with Ireland itself. We plan on going back soon and now I have more reason to go. I have a friend that lives there. We wandered all over Dublin and stayed for 2 weeks in a beautiful townhome in Lansdowne. Everything was in it. Just like home!

Did you showcase this pic already? It looks vaguely familiar. Beautiful though. Hmmm maybe I have been journalling in my sleep again. :-) ---Robbie
