Re: Re: Dun Laoghaire Plage
Can someone explain the nostalgia for the baths to me? To me these are no more than concrete boxes that disfigure the shore. Why would anyone want to swim in a concrete box full of seawater rather than the sea itself? Why would you repose on concrete in an area concentrated with other people and their noise and filth when you could repose on the sand or the flat rocks that are cleaned by the sea twice a day? Am I missing something here? Does the seawater heat up in the pool? Is it safer? Is there some victorian structure of beauty beneath the concrete?
