On the way back and reaching Dublin city, Theresa veered off in certain directions to show me some typical Dublin heritage architecture, and we passed through red-bricked Dartmouth Square (loved it) and then onto the gracious and majestic Fitzwilliam Square with its tall grey-bricked town houses and customary black railings rising from the pavements. Thank you Theresa, you know I’m passionate about historic architecture and heritage, and you always know what will grab my attention.
Theresa dropped me off at Dublin international airport to catch the plane home to Nottingham East Midlands Airport and back to Beeston. I was fortunate enough to meet a lovely lady, a sculptor and architectural landscaper, who suggested a joined-up taxi ride home knowing we would have to wait another 30-40 minutes at the Skylink bus stop. I took her up on her offer and we had a most enlightening conversation back talking about Beeston and its how public art and sculptures, and proposed architecture could be used more effectively to arouse spatial awareness and creative urban planning.
Home at last and straight into bed.
What a fantastic two weeks I had experienced with Pam Miller in London and Theresa Moynes in and around Dublin. Never to be forgotten. Thank you lovely ladies for your joyful and invigorating company.
