A recent discovery for us has been the Great South Wall, Poolbeg Lighthouse walk. It's only a short distance from where we live so it's a bit shameful that we're only finding it now but we've been making up for that over the last month. I wanted to share it with you here because I think it's one of those lovely spots in Dublin that when you're there, makes you forget that you're actually in a city. It's really peaceful and feels like you're right in the middle of the sea. Even when the water is turbulent, it's still somehow really calming.
As we've been having unseasonably good weather lately (hello global warming), we've been making the most of the the last vestiges of the sun before old man Winter shows his face again. Last weekend was just at that tipping point I think. Gloriously sunny and about 19 degrees (seriously) but insanely windy. I expressed a fear several times that I was going to be swept out to sea and be that person on the RTE news that people are like "what was she thinking" etc but himself laughed heartily at that and I soon got over it. We did get nicely coated in sea spray but in a pleasantly bracing fashion; nothing quite like a blast from the sea to awaken the senses!

Generally making a fool of myself there. Plus check out the crazy windswept hair!
Any new discoveries in your own city? Do you also fear being swept out to sea or is that just me?! To the comments!
