Since I was a child I had wanted to go on a road trip in the USA. When we drove along the Pacific Coast Highway, it was great, but it wasn’t the little town and open road that I had imagined. Two years later, we decided to drive from LA to Las Vegas along a bit of Route 66. I was not disappointed. This was how I had imagined a road trip would be!
I can’t believe this year will be five years since our “big trip”, so to finish up on the sunny photo week, here are some California shots from along the Pacific Coast Highway.
The lakes in Killarney national park.
Ireland’s third most visited place (after the Guinness Storehouse and the zoo), but probably the most iconic, is the Cliffs of Moher.
I’ve never managed to see them in the sun, but we did avoid rain-a massive plus! We saw a couple getting married there this time and all I could think was that she was one brave bride to get married outdoors in the wind and almost rain! Stunning location for a wedding though.
Next stop, Canada!
When you need to get away, you might as well get away to a totally different landscape.
The Burren, Co Clare, a karst limestone national park. It’s a bit different from the green or the sea!
One of my favourite beaches here is Inchydoney outside Clonakilty in Cork. There are two beaches or sometimes three depending on the tide.
The beach is always busy and there’re always people in the water. Plus the hotel has lovely food after a long walk!
Today is a pretty murky day here and it reminded me of a pretty murky day we had driving through the south island of New Zealand. Even through the drizzle the trees looked so pretty.
On the road somewhere between Christchurch and Wanaka.
