The rain water collected on grassy areas to minimize street flooding, and in a couple of hours the rain was gone. And the rest of the year the retention area for flood control are parks, golf courses, bike and walking trails, and little ponds for ducks and geese.

This week we are showing photos Cabra Castle, northwest of Dublin, Ireland, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. It is a castle hotel that is a delightful place to stay.
