Sunday September 7th Howth

Just two of us today, Jessica and James.It turned out to be a lovely sunny day too. We ended up sketching from the hill up at the Martello Tower. Jessica did a number of sketches based on Irelands eye and one of the boats in the harbour - we both reckon you can see a lions head if you look closely at the rocky cliffs of the island - see pic to left. Jessica also spotted the picture of a ship someone scratched into wet concrete amongst the paving stones on Howth pier - see pics to left. I got to do a sketch of the exterior of the tower and one interior sketch of the tower which houses a fascinating radio / telegraph museum. Well worth a trip,although it will cost you a fiver but this goes to the worthy Irish Lifeboats.
