And so summer 2021 comes to an end, with September tomorrow. This was one of our last beach days this year – a glorious day in sunshine with the north west County Mayo coast at its very best.
No shortage of back country roads here in County Mayo, Ireland. Here is one from a recent cycle in North Mayo, when the higher hills disappeared into the mist.
Nice old gates…….
And some pretty orchids on route.
And so we reach the end of 2020. A challenging year on so many levels. Usually we try and get a beach walk in on the 31st December or the 1st of January. But knowing we were heading back into a new covid 19 level five lockdown today (our highest level lockdown here in Ireland), which includes a 5km travel restriction – we made the most of yesterday and went to Ross Beach.
A visit to the beach, no matter what time of year, brings cheer. The tide was out and the low winter light perfect.
I want to thank all those who have stopped by over the last year, particularly those that have taken time to comment. I know I haven’t been as good as other years in reading and commenting and I will try to do more in 2021. I do value this wordpress community, the support, inspiration and kindness you all offer.
I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I hope 2021 brings you some magic.
