Fit For a Queen

I have been following the Queen's state visit to Ireland with interest.  It is a historic occasion and HTLT has a keen sense of history.  Also a keen sense of the ridiculous.  I found it amusing to note that the pool in the Garden of Remembrance (the pool of remembrance?) has been cleaned to within an inch of its life.  I don't like to suggest that this is the first time it's been cleaned, but it certainly wasn't this pristine when I last visited, just over a year ago.

  1. I remember it well! Apparently she was the first person in 29 years to go in there without being asked for a cigarette...
