and the sun continued to smile upon us, so we did what we have been itching to do but couldn't over the last week.
We drove half an hour south to one of our favourite beaches, Silver Strand, just south of Wicklow town.
This is a beach from my childhood.
I know we have a beach on our doorstep, but that's where you go for stoney winter windswept walks.
This beach is where you go when you want to swim,
and catch minnows and shrimp,
because there are boats to be sailed,
and holes to be dug.
