Oh happy day!

It was such a lovely morning, we decided to head for the nearest coast, the Irish Sea at Murlough Bay, County Down.

We followed the boardwalk through the dunes.

That’s Slieve Donard in the middle, Northern Ireland’s highest mountain at 850m (2790ft).  We couldn’t believe how good the views were today.

Continuing on the boardwalk the sea eventually came into view.

The pictures say it all: wonderful.

We ended up in Newcastle for our picnic lunch, then a stroll along the front with an ice cream.  What more can I say?

The last picture is looking north from Newcastle, back to our starting point.  What a wonderful day!
