These steps are leading down to a dock that has almost no use. There is tram to the dock now. In a few years the roots from the plants will start to push the steps apart. I didn't notice when taking the photo but while looking at it on the computer I thought it looked like a display at a flower shot titled "Old Ireland"

    Wow! Very likely in a few years if the steps are pulled apart from the roots, they probably be of no use even to the elves! LOL...Very nice shot, Joe! Hope you are having a great honeymoon.
