Everyone needs a holiday!

Sorry I've been so quiet this last week - I had some time off and my hubby and I decided to take a min-break to a place we love dearly with all our hearts.  West Cork is in the very South West tip of Ireland and it is an utterly magical place - right by the sea, you can go for miles without meeting another soul.  It's so beautiful, peaceful and quiet and the people are really lovely.  We've been travelling down there there for the last 8 years - in fact, it's where we went for our first holiday together (when we only knew each other for a month!) and it was absolutely the first choice for our honeymoon too! Our long term plan is to move there at some point - we can't at the moment due to family committments but moving there is absolutely our biggest life plan.  Below are some of the pictures from our trip ... I hope you enjoy them!!

Inchydoney Beach. Clonakilty on a quiet February Tuesday afternoon

A tired me, by the fire, in the local - hubby's pint of Murphy's can also be seen!

A secret place just beyond Mizen Head, West Cork - we've spent a lot of time here, the sound is magical as the waves crash against the rocks

Proof that the sun does shine in February in West Cork!

Crookhaven, West Cork - a perfect day out!

It looked warm enough to paddle but look at his face! He was shouting "It's soooooooo coooooolllllllllllddddddd"

Well, that's all the photos - hope you enjoyed them... it was such a fantastic trip and one sorely needed too.  Sometimes it's important for us to remember what's important in this life - for me, it's family, my lovely hubby and spending quality time together.  With the hustle and bustle of life, a new business and other issues, it can be hard to get time out to just breathe the air and remember what's important in life.
