Just another day at the office.

I have just been in the middle of nowhere. Literally.

Man, real mountains. Ours are a lot older (smaller). I live at the foot of the Dublin mountains, and used to work near them too. One day we had Swiss visitors who were having a hushed conversation, after which on approached a colleague of mine, pointed out the window and asked:
"What do you call those?"

"The Dublin mountains"

"See, I told you they call them mountains"

Hah! Did they not think they were high enough to qualify as real mountains?

I get calmer just looking at that picture.

I'd lile to let all of my fellow Laughykate readers know that, in a comment on my blog about short people, she has just claimed to excel at hide and seek.

I see she's not kidding.

Mwa, it was amazing. So quiet.

And Tinman isn't lying....although I don't like to crow, but I am very good at hide and seek. And no one found me out there.

Well given that they were pointing at Two Rock (also called Fairy Castle) at 536m, I'd guess it didn't measure up. We spent the rest of the day feeling inadequate.

Ooooh, purty.

Lol @ "Grow Up"! Yeah, the Spouse Sparrow thinks some "mountains" they have in Northern Ireland are actual mountains. We live in Southern California; it's not a mountain unless it's over 6,000 feet. Although I'm sure the Swiss would be snickering at our "mountains."

Growup, you have a mountain called Fairy Castle?! Genius.

Fat Sparrow, that one in the shot is 9467 feet, so I figure it would scrape in to category of mountain as far as the Swiss were concerned.

I walked up this a 'mountain' on Saturday.

Wow. That's very cool. How high?

Holemaster said...

Oh eh, erm, eh, only about 725m





from sea level.

It looks bigger. Actually, you could have added another digit and I would have still believed you.
