Carrickfin Beach with Arranmore Island in the distance
Carrickfin Beach beckoned me on Sunday, as calm, sunny weather made a very welcome reappearance after Storm Callum.
The beach is rarely busy, despite its obvious beauty:
The sky remained reflected on the tide, as I neared the North end of the beach:
I traveled past rocks and rock pools:
And sat in silence, simply watching the waves ebb and flow:
It soothed my Soul – a fitting end to my two week staycation, and reminded me that we do not have to travel far from home to relax and recharge our batteries.
