Just spending one night up at the cottage for St Patrick`s , and this morning we wrapped up warmly for a walk on the beach. There are quite a few beaches nearby to choose from, but we opted for Runkerry Strand wish is near Portballintrae.
From the carpark in Portballintrae it is just a short walk down a path with stunning views
Then over the River Bush by a wooden foot bridge
And on to the beach
The tide was quite far in, so there was little sand to walk on, mostly rocks.
Lots of bright seaweed to take pics of - this is not photo editing, it really was that orange.
Despite being such a cold blustery day, it was quite sheltered on the actual beach, despite the hugs waves.
However we didn't linger too long.
Back over the bridge
Up the path to the car park. There is a small stone stile which I remember climbing over as a child, and now it is my son's turn.
So there you have it - all photos taken on the iphone.
Happy St Patrick's Day wherever you are.
