This afternoon we headed over to part of the North Coast of Northern Ireland which we don’t visit so often, the beach at Downhill, just beyond Castlerock.
Downhill beach is a 7 mile stretch of golden sand from Magillan Point to Mussenden and apparently is one of the longest beaches in Europe. It was a breezy afternoon, and we had the beach almost to ourselves.
The beach provides stunning views of Mussenden Temple.
Despite it still only being August, our middle daughter started her first day at her new school yesterday – it was only a half day however, and by mid-afternoon we were back up at the cottage, and headed over to Ballycastle for icecream last night.
Here she is her in her new uniform
So with a brief reminder of the school term starting properly next week, it was lovely to be on the beach this afternoon. Summer is not quite over yet!
