We took a mini cruise on the P&O Ferries' "Pride of Bilbao" from Portsmouth Harbour to Bilbao. It was a really relaxing journey with plenty of good weather to enable some Whale watching in the Bay of Bisacay. Its one of the best value deals around, and we couldn't understand why more people don't do it.
I had a day free in transit to walk around dublin. It was a lovely afternoon so I had to take some shots of the city. Dublin is very crowded in August it seems, and I have to say the beer is now very expensive.
