Castlegregory Beach

Castlegregory Beach

Sand that goes on for miles and miles so it’s easy to find a spot for your towel. Lovely beach and the water is warm!

Right next to Wine Strand

Right next to Wine Strand

If you go down to Wine Strand on the Dingle Peninsula but go straight ahead instead of turning right you’ll come across another beach. Lovely to walk on but I heard that it can be dangerous to swim there because of the local currents.

Summer at Garylucas Beach

People in Ireland are discouraged from travelling abroad right now due to the pandemic but luckily the weather is, or was glorious last weekend so everyone who could went to the beach. Lots of cars on the road but there was plenty of room on Garylucas Beach for everyone to be safely distanced from each other.

* We also have Covid19 deniers who think the pandemic is overblown and the mainstream media is spouting lies about the virus.

Dugort Beach, Achill Island

 Dugort Beach, Achill Island

Achill Island is a beautiful island off the coast of Mayo. There’s a bridge connecting the island to the mainland making it easier to get there which is great because it’s a wonderful place to visit. This is Dugort Beach in the north of the island.

Landing in Lanzarote

Lanzarote Airport sits right by the coast. There’s a beach at one end of the runway where you can get great photos of the landing planes.

I wonder what the pilots think of the onlookers watching at this dangerous stage of a flight?
