Waking up to sea salt

October in Ireland, so unsurprising that a day at the beach requires being wrapped up warm. No bikinis here. Was particularly gloomy and gusty today but good to stretch the legs and blow the cobwebs away.  I took these pictures below in Enniscrone, a seaside town a few minutes from my house. The beach is over 5km long and banked by sand dunes looking to the Atlantic – next stop New York, well almost!

When I was younger we would have spent the ‘hot summer days’ here with picnics. I have a memory of cowering behind windbreakers eating very crunchy sandwiches full of sand. Today though it was quiet and I almost had the place to myself.
