The Road from 5km to 20km

The Copper Coast, Co. Waterword

Next Monday is the day that we are due to be allowed travel 20km from home which is an increase from the current 5km restriction here in Ireland.

I’m like a child about it – thinking of all my favourite places that have been just out of reach. High on the list is a road along the Copper Coast which is festooned with Sea Pinks in May, early June. I am hoping to catch them while they are still in their glory.

But, there will also be all the beaches that are so close to my heart:

Garrarus, Co. Waterford

and going out to see the swan family in the Anne Valley…

  1. So beautiful ..We use to live not far from the beach and we would go walking after the beach goers left..I have a nice collection of asst. beach rocks, pieces of drift wood and beach glass…These are pleasant memories when I look at them from time to time…

      1. Almost back to normal, though I can’t visit my mother without wearing a mask, and only for 20 minutes. This would be on the porch with someone with us at all times to ensure compliance.
