Clearing out the Chrimbo cobwebs
After a gluttonous December, it was time to get out and about! Hubbie and I decided against a mountain hike due to the recent storms and flooding.
We hadn’t been to St Anne’s park in Raheny in months so we headed there for a long walk. St Anne’s park is the second biggest park in Dublin (the biggest is the Phoenix park). After a brief walk around the park, our hunger pangs brought us to the Red Stables. We wandered around the market stalls until the waft of pizza, crepes and coffee became too irresistible.
With full bellies and a renewed energy, we walked through the park to Dollymount Strand on Bull Island. The recent flooding was evident but thankfully we could still walk along the beach. From the Northern road entrance, we turned left on to the beach and walked as far as we could without getting wet!
We walked 14.5km in total. Not a bad start to my 2014 exercise plan!
