We then headed to the shopping district. Diana and I bought some food at the local Marks & Spencers food hall in case we couldn't find an open restaurant over the weekend. I used to shop at their London store years ago.

We walked quite a ways along the river to the huge ferris wheel. Why do I do these things? I thought I could ride this thing but NO! I was terrified the whole time:):) It was perfectly safe but what was I thinking? When I was about 8 or 9, my older sister and I got left on a ferris wheel for way too long. My uncle had to go find the operator and get him to let us off. My opinon of ferris wheels was forever changed.
Later in the evening, we went to mass at the church that was closest to our hotel. There was a program of Christmas carols before the mass. Lovely!
Back at the hotel, they served all their Christmas guests hot mulled wine and mince pies. Very Irish!
