ACTIVE IN ENNIS
Location: The Tim Smythe Park is located at Fairgreen right in the heart of Ennis
This stroll is short and sweet but can be extended if you walk in from Ballyvaughan village. Ample parking is provided along the sea front though no doubt it’s a busy spot during peak times. Needless to say a lot of care is need along the pier itself especially with active toddlers. The infamous Monks’ pub sits opposite the pier so the ideal spot for a cuppa to soak in the stunning scenery. Walk this way for more walks in Clare.
The Flaggy Shore – Geosite is a half a mile of coastline that stretches from New Quay to Finavarra with a panoramic view of Galway Bay. While there are no facilities other than a make-shift car parking area, this walk is a must if you are visiting the area. It’s beauty and wilderness inspired our very own Séamus Heaney who’s poem ‘Postcript’ details a visit he made there. A magical find in the banner county with a tarmac path along the coast making it very accessible indeed. Continue reading
What better way to mark Day 7 (walk) of our photo challenge with a guest feature from Laurie of www.iamlauriem.com. As a parent who shares a love for the outdoors like ourselves, Laurie has written a beautiful and witty piece all about walking. She captured everything that walking means to me and makes some wonderful points how it such a big part of our lives (sometimes without us even realising). Once our little ones take their first steps, it’s such a milestone and one we anticipate with great excitement (hence the above photo is of our little munchkins hand-in-hand).
So please sit back, enjoy and continue reading below all about the joys and wonder of walking. If it resonates with you as much as it did with me you’ll be grabbing those boots/shoes/runners and heading out for a walk with a whole new appreciation for it. A great big thank you to Laurie for sharing with us all.
