Today’s blog post is about my weekend away by the seaside.It was my dads birthday on Thursday the 29th of September so on Saturday my family and I went away for the weekend to celebrate.We went to Salthill in Galway which is a nice place to go if you want to go somewhere that isn’t super busy and chaotic.
We found a garden called “The circle of life garden” which was so pretty.It looked like something from the secret garden.It was a great place for photo opportunities and it was just a really nice place to walk around.It was so peaceful and I got so many pictures there which I was super happy about.
It had really pretty walk ways,a bridge with a wishing well underneath it.It also had a pond and sections of trees which looked like mini forests,it really set the autumnal spirit which I loved.We were the only people there and it didn’t look like many people actually go there but I think it would be a great place for a picnic.
This is the bridge that has a wishing well underneath it.If you don’t know what a wishing well is,you basically drop a coin into the water and make a wish.
My mum and I each threw in a coin to make a wish but I forgot to make a wish and just dropped the coin in.It was very relaxing to just sit on the bridge and look at the view around us because it was a very pretty garden.
Of course we also went to the beach.You can’t stay by the seaside and not go to the sea.The waves were crazy on Sunday,I actually quite like the sound of the waves crashing upon the shore even though I’m scared of the sea.I really like the beach at salthill because it’s small and calming.
We also went into Galway city on Sunday for lunch and we also done a bit of shopping.I like shopping in Galway city because it’s never too chaotic and it actually doesn’t stress me out as much as other places to go shopping.We went to a traditional Irish cafe which I love because it’s small and cosy.
I had a really nice weekend by the sea,taking pictures,exploring the garden,playing in the amusements and just celebrating my dads birthday.
