St. Patrick's Day Parade

St. Patrick's Day Parade

I watched Dublin's St. Patrick's Day parade live online on RTE yesterday (and of course that only made my pining for Ireland worse but it was a fantastic parade). It's still up if you want to have a look. The program runs for an hour.

I took some screen grabs for Paddy (since he couldn't watch the parade live) and thought I might as well drop a few of them in here:





















Glad they had a nice bright day for the annual parade! It was a completely gorgeous day in southern Ontario too, only slightly marred by the fact that I couldn't obtain a Shamrock Shake. In fact, there were no Shamrock Shakes to be had anywhere across Canada this year as McDonald's suspended the promotion up here two years ago. Yes, shakeless! It's an outrage. While our neighbours to the south enjoy minty goodness all we could do here was endulge in Shamrock Shake nostalgia.



Apparently they can be a bit tough to find in the States too (although at least there you have a fighting chance!) so if you're a shake fan you might want to bookmark this Shamrock Shake page for next year. People report which McDonald's locations they've been able to find the shakes in. Me, I had to settle for mint ice cream and well, it just wasn't the same.
