We went back to the recycling centre this morning. When we went on Monday, we knew it would be closed and that was fine. No need to wander around looking for it while carrying stuff. Today we brought our tins and glass. We talked to the guy there and asked him what the process is for food garbage. They do 'regular' recycling, too, so we will be able to bring our milk cartons and stuff there as well. At first, he was telling us how much it would cost per car load, but when we said we would be walking, he said it'd just be a euro.
As we were on our way there, we were greeted again, as we were on Monday, by the dog from the Inis Ean B&B. S/he has three legs, but gets around fine. S/he is very friendly and mellow, which is good considering she has an important job at the B&B, greeting guests and making them feel welcome. Even though we were just passing by, s/he came out for some praise and petting.
On the way back, we saw a dog that looked very like the one from the B&B standing on the footpath ahead of us. At first, I thought it was the same dog, but with a wee friend who was a fluffball covered in curly black fur. The wee one ran around on tiny legs, barking a few times so we knew who was in charge. I was concerned when s/he ran into the road--being black and very small, it would be easy for a driver to simply not see the dog until it was too late. Fortunately, it's not a busy road. As we walked by, I realised that the larger dog was not our B&B friend, because I could see 4 legs.
It's a nice walk to the recycling centre and it's even nicer with dogs. 😀
