As Sundays are my only full day off, I love to go out and do things. Otherwise it’s most likely that I will end up cleaning and shopping and feeling sorry for myself! And since the year the Irish summer has spoilt us, there have been plenty of beautiful sunny weekends! While I love exploring new places, sometimes it’s just nice to not spend hours in the car to get there and actually spent more time just being there. So we’ve decided to head down to the closest beach which is just under an hour away in Garretstown. A small village with loads of holiday homes and two splendid beaches. With sunshine and temperatures int he low 20s the kids weren’t shy to go for a swim while I spend hours reading, watching the kids and just taking in the beauty! If it doesn’t go over 30 degrees, chances are you won’t ever see me swimming in the Irish sea!
