Wednesday, August 17 -- Bill woke up today feeling miserable with a terrible cough. We called for a
doctor. The doctor actually came to the hotel room, said that Bill had bronchitis and had to spend the
day in bed to rest and recover. We missed the tour of Dublin scheduled for today. I went and got Bill's
prescriptions, did our laundry, went shopping, wandered around Dun Laoghaire and took these photos.
This is our hotel, the Royal Marine. We had one of the rooms
with a balcony, seen on the right, with a gorgeous view of the bay.

Our hotel was on a cul-de-sac off the main street where you see the church. The City Hall of Dun Laoghaire Dun Laoghaire harbor Thursday, August 18 -- We departed for our tour of Ireland.  Our first - stop was the Irish National Stud Farm and Japanese Gardens.
