Sunny Sunday drive. Around the winding coastal tracks checking out each of the beaches along the route. Garrarus, Kilfarrasey, Annestown, Benvoy, Boatstrand, Kilmurrin Cove........
Swims had here earlier in the year are discussed. Cliff erosion is inspected. Winter storm damage assessed.
Some slight afternoon sunshine warms the rocks. The Atlantic, full of energy and diamond lights, is a dazzling presence. We sit in silence soaking in the salty air. We are giving the old brain cells a strong dose of ozone and crashing waves. Cobwebs are instantly cleared from the brain.
A wet dog, head cocked to one side, stares at a black stone, and whines at his owners, but today this performance all goes unnoticed.
