Summer in a Nutshell

Between starting a new job, getting used to a crazy schedule and trying to meet up with people I used to see everyday, taking photos and blogging has fallen down my priority list, unfortunately. I’ve been quite lucky that my random days off have been sunny so I’ve been making the most of the summer. Here’s a little catch up post.

My days off have consisted of enjoying city views and street festivals, walks by the sea and sorting out the garden. Hope you’re all having a lovely summer 🙂

Out to Sea

June has started with some nice weather, although you never know when it’s going to change so you need to be prepared when going for a walk! Yesterday, as the sky was blue we decided on a short walk to Blackrock Castle, maybe do a little wedding spying (we were in luck!)

As we were leaving, I wanted to take a shot of the castle with a nice blue sky. I was just about to take it when the shot when the bow of a ship appeared!

I think this makes a change to my usual shots of Blackrock Castle and adds a bit of colour!

 

Achill Island

Achill Island, or Paradise as I like to call it, it off the coast of Mayo in the west of Ireland. It’s one of my favourite places in the country because of it’s beautiful, unspoilt beaches, which you can see in my header picture!

When the sun is shining, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were on an island far, far away and not in Ireland!
