Seaside Sunny South EastAugust 23 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C
We’ve been in search of sea and sun, and then we found it. Off a small road half way between Wicklow and Wexford we arrived perched above the coast and cliffs.
The sea mist quickly rolls in, as we have a natter with two locals sitting on the bench getting their fix of the sea. Sun disappears for a short while☀️ but returns after our early (6pm) dinner for an evening stroll along the sandy beach. The fishers are out, and some others too.
A seal is spotted briefly among the shimmering sea…
Molly returns a second time to the beach, as the sun sets further, in swim gear to make the most of the calm evening, warmer waters and getting a dose of vitamin-sea!
Upon her return (a mere minutes walk from where the camper is parked up), there are at least 8 heads bobbing in the water…seems many people had the idea of a sunset dip! And why wouldn’t you on such an evening….
The sky burns and is reflected on the sand, still glistening from the waves that pull back out. People gather in bunches on the beach or in the water. A social hour. The fishers are still there. Setting in for the night it seems. It’s a full moon, so surely some good catch to be had.
The stones shine golden almost in that setting sun light. The sea changes shades of blue with green, and silver before a midnight navy blue.
Back to Frank for a hot chocolate as the full moon rises and spreads its glow across the bay….the next morning the sun rises as though taking the moons places exactly. A warmer glow to enjoy with a cup of tea!
This feels like summer. Salty air. Warm wind. Blue seas.Read more
