Seaweed baths, raincoats and a waterfall

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

There are many things that seem synonymous with Strandhill : surf, seaweed baths, Shells cafe, a welcome drink at Strand Bar/ Draft House and the Wild Atlantic way (this list goes on).  When the weather turns for the worse, the west coast residents break out extra layers, wellies, raincoats and just keep on keeping on.

Spending time with Louise and her beautiful little ones, seeing them pay no heed to taking a 7km walk in the rain (hero qualities), jump in puddles with reckless abandon (wellies filled with water with little complaint and plenty of giggles) was genuinely endearing to witness.  And quite infectious to boot.

On Sunday morning we went to enjoy a Voya seaweed bath, had brunch at Shells cafe, took a 7km rainy walk to the People's Market, drove to the Glencar waterfall and then back to Rosses point before breaking for dinner.  The weather was rainy, wet, unpredictable but we were together and it was the best sort of weary to be at the end of an eventful day.

Adam, Louise and the Kilbane family are fun, easy-going and open-arms, belly laughs welcoming.  (My favourite kind of people.)  Couldn't have imagined a sweeter Easter.
