Irish Summer

Is it over? Has it begun yet? Did I miss it?

So many questions … I tried to find the answer at the beach today. My first conclusion is: no – summer is not over and it is happening right now! I saw people surfing the mighty waves and brave souls swimming. Therefore I can’t have missed it.

The last few days have been real Irish – grey and rainy. Perfect to stay inside, switch up all routine and do a house cleaning marathon. It’s kinda fun, to see how much energy I have if I don’t go run. I couldn’t continue like this though and went out today. I had to check up on my beach. Good that I did! The storms have changed all the rocks around again. Someone has played around with the saturation level of the ocean and taken all the color out. Kelp is everywhere.

A slight drizzle accompanied me, when I headed up the hill. If I ignore all the fallen leaves I can keep telling myself it still is summer …

  1. Housecleaning marathon? It’s that time in my house too! Maybe that’s what the rain is for, otherwise you don’t want to waste the lovely weather!

  2. 😞 I heard the geese flying south yesterday and totally tried to convince myself that they were just looking for another pond but…. They were very high up… *fingerscrossed* it’s just a weather blip at the mo!

  3. Have the storms passed by now – We’re in the middle of gales and driving rain. I may take this as a sign to take an extra rest day but I feel the guilt!
