Yesterday, with the weather being so beautiful (in the mid 20s) we headed off to Brittas Bay on the east coast, about 40 mins from the city centre.
There are an abundance of beaches along the way but none as good as Brittas. We have Sam’s friend, Anne, from our old neighbourhood in Aylesbury staying with us for a few days, so it was a great opportunity to show her the sunnier sights of Ireland.
It was a mission getting the double buggy onto the beach but we managed if not a little exhausted by the time we got there. Once the girls were sun creamed and had sunglasses and hats on they were out of harms way – apart from the odd passerby with flip flops flicking the sand into the breeze and the girls got covered. They’ll soon learn that if you go to the beach expect to get covered in sand :)
I had planned on leisure paddle out to sea to bask in the sun, but after I dipped my toe, it was never going happen – the water was baltic!
We stayed for a good couple of hours and really enjoyed it. The girls enjoyed it immensely, they never stopped gabbling while we were there. We finished off the day with dinner in our favourite restaurant, the Angler’s Rest.
Tomorrow we plan on a leisurely drive through the Wicklow National Park.
