Saturday the 17th of July was the hottest year so far in 2021 in Ireland. 30° celcius and no breeze is too much for an Irishman such as myself and I needed some cooling off. There’s just a dead heat in Limerick city so it’s time to head south to Ballybunion and walk along the beach. What a beautiful day it turned out to be. It’s really the little things like this that make life so enjoyable, spending time with my girlfriend and taking my little dog out for a dip in the sea. We took him off his leash as we walked through the water and the joy in this little dogs face just brings all the joy in the world to my heart. I’m eternally grateful that these little companions are real and we get to hang out together. It’s so beautiful just having this magical little creature who can’t talk to me but we have a connection that’s so special, he’s my little guy. We sat and took in the heat and the sea breeze, it was paradise. The beach was packed so we walked along away from everyone else and found a big expansive stretch of beach before us. Between walking along and feeling the cold water on our feet and the heat of the sun beaming down on us it was the escape we all need especially now more than ever.
How did you guys enjoy the weekend? Any fun trips or was it a chill lazy weekend? My Sunday was very relaxed and I started the Once upon a time in Hollywood novel and I’m only 140 pages in but it’s an incredible companion piece already.
