  1. I’m working on not being a jealous person but I failed in this instance. Simply breathtaking. Was the water cold?

    • I grew up in Wales so I’m used to cold water paddling but yesterday it was like ice water direct from the Arctic! πŸ™‚

      • What’s up with that. I taught my students that there was a warm ocean current in your parts. Does it warm up later in the summer?

      • I met a little old lady who said she was there the day before and it was warm then. It must have been a freak current or something. The lady was worried about her husband who was recovering from an operation. He was in the cold water with his grandchildren, putting on a brave face for them, while she worried at the water’s edge. A touching scene.

    • It stretches off to the left and right of the picture as well. Plenty of space for everyone – picnickers, horse-riders, surfers, paddlers, kids playing ball games and flying kites. πŸ™‚

      Achill Island is certainly a beautiful place. πŸ™‚
