Did you know that I'm living in the Sunny South East of Ireland ― in Co. Wexford? On a clear day I can see the Irish Sea from my windows on the east, south, and west side of our home. God has blessed us so much when we moved into this house.
We have two dogs, a purebred sheepdog called Rap and a good Wexford Mix (not my but the vet's words) called Missy. I take them to the beach which is only 4km (2.5mi) away from where we live. Would you like to join me? Let's go!
Walking on the wooden path and then entering the beach we see the water waves coming ashore. Which way shall we go today? Hm, let's go left. What a beautiful day! If you want to you can take your shoes off and walk barefoot on the sand and in the water.
Stop for a moment and glance back. Do you see him? Do you see the angler way back there? No? Okay. Let us move on while keeping our eyes open to discover the beautiful plants along the way. There are no flowers at the beach you say? Look over there!
Oops, we better mind our steps. We almost stepped on a jellyfish. I don't like them. Do you?
Oh, see the seaweed over there in the wet sand? It comes in different shapes and colors. Fascinating, isn't it?
There are so many things to discover at the beach; stones and shells are among some of my favorite findings here.
I've never seen something like this before I moved to Ireland. Have you?
It's called a sea wash ball, and it's a cluster of egg cases of the whelk which is a sea snail. By the end of September they appear more frequently on the beach.
Watch your step! Oh my goodness! Look at that. What do people think of when they dispose of their razors, fishing hooks, and other dangerous items? Don't they realize that people might step into them and get hurt?
Talking about danger, do you see the lifebuoy over there? While this is a lovely wide beach we are walking on today it can become quite narrow especially during the winter. That's when it is good to know where these buoys are located at. Yes, you are probably right. Who wants to talk about winter on a sunny warm day like this?
I hope you enjoyed our little stroll at the beach today. I would love to show you more of Ireland's beauty, culture, and people in future posts. So please stay tuned.
I'm a helpmeet, homemaker and writer. I was born and raised in Germany but I'm now living in the stunning Sunny South East of Ireland.
