At the beach (Ireland)

While at the beach, Kaitlyn and I splashed in the water, squished the sand under our toes, regretted our decision to wear Toms (worst sand-shoes ever), ran away from jellyfish, enjoyed the cool breeze, and basked in the sun while listening to some Devendra Banhart with my iPod headphone splitters.  Much to the dismay of our growling stomachs, we hadn’t a single snack upon us, which proved to be extremely detrimental as we attempted the several-hour trek back to the bed & breakfast on the verge of starvation. 

Please note that the “several-hour trek back to the bed & breakfast” should have taken maybe 20-30 minutes.

And that story will be told tomorrow.

Ah, the beach! And ewwww, jellyfish! Got oodles of them here Down Under, yes sirree...thankfully, I have yet to be stung. (And HOPEFULLY this won't change, heh.)

Look forward to hearing the story about what derailed you on what should have been a 20-30min walk! EEEEP!

A pretty beach, not so thrilled about the jellyfish though. I love the photos, and the filter you've used, so beautiful.

I love reading about your adventures, and I do think any beach adventure is a good one... even if you have to take the long 20min. journey back to a bed & breakfast. Sigh. =)

Looking forward to tomorrow's tale
