Aug 2010 – Beach bags, packed lunches, ferry rides & Sherkin Island
Each year as August rolls on there’s a day when I suddenly realise that summer is almost at an end and from that day onwards we take every opportunity to head off to the beach – Tralispeen if we only have a couple of hours free or even better a day trip to Sherkin Island. The ferry makes it feel like a proper expedition. As the ferry lands the holiday makers disperse as there are several beaches to choose from - Trabawn, Cow Strand, Horseshoe Bay, Silver Strand with white sands and clear turquoise seas. I’m not sure what our favourite beach is called we just head straight past the ruined abbey and walk down lovely country lanes with views out to sea until we reach an overgrown path that leads down to our cove!
