A Grand Day Out

We went off to Newcastle in County Down for the day. To please my little people we went to the beach. Unfortunately it started to rain. We went to my most favourite place Tollymore Forest Park beside the Mountains of Mourne. The sun came out eventually to show it's peaceful beauty. Simply stunning place. Hunger struck after all that fresh air and walking so we had a gorgeous meal in the Buck's Head in Dundrum. Perfect ending to a perfect day

@ Rosa Thank you Rosa but it is Newcastle on Co Down Northern Ireland not England. That does cause some confusion :)

Oh I love Tollymore - my parents used to take us every year in the caravan. It's one of my favourite places too. Will have to try and get a run down before the summers over.

@ Alice It certainly was even though it was a bit on the wet side at times.

@ Clabby It is a fabulous place. We used to take our caravan when the youngsters were small. Who knows perhaps you played with them :)
