beach road 2

As we began our trek up Beach Rd,  these were some of the scenes I saw.   I wondered where this helicopter came from and where it was headed.  The church spire on the left is Christ Church and the one on the right is St. Joseph's Catholic Church.


an early morning flight for this bird


 boats tied up and secured



Some boats along the way




 

playground for the kids




some wall art on the wall behind the playground.  I never heard of Grace O'Malley so I googled and yes she was real and a very interesting person.



I love this mini wall with the red door.  It doesn't seem to be anything around it and I didn't see if I could go around it but I think it looks great, a kind of rock puzzle.






someone's private entrance.  It looks like it has a red door, my favorite colour.





this is the end of Beach Rd.



 



the cafe, we didn't go in because we had brought our own food and water for the walk.



Clifden Beach


 the end--I wonder who decided to hang a boot there, I like it!  And now we head back.

  1. So many nice image. The top image looks a bit like my posting (yesterday) I liked the fantastic stone wall! And I think AMY still looks pretty. She must have several interesting stories to tell... I love the colours you find here and there out in the landscape. Have a nice day!

  4. Thanks for taking us along on the walk with you. The boats in particular intrigued me; they have obviously led a long and hard life!

  7. Bill, my favorites are "an early morning flight", Amy is in rough shape and "the mini wall with the red door."

  8. Lots of interesting and colourful sights to enjoy along this road! The wall looks so new and well built that the red door is a puzzle there!

  9. What a great series...you captured so many interesting and unique places...my favorite is that wall with the red door, too. And I love all those boats - looks like they've had a lot of use. I got a real "kick" out of that boot. :)

  13. I love the red door and the photo with the shoe. Beautiful photos (all). We often see the emergency helicopter because the hospital is near. I like your helicopter :-)
