What a glorious day! These could be the last good days of summer, so off we go for a tour of County Down to some of our favourite places. First to the house and gardens of wonderful Mount Stewart.
Then we board the ferry at Portaferry to cross to Strangford. Such a short trip but being on the water is a joy today.
A short drive from Strangford is Kilclief. There are a few families on the beach: one group having a picnic, another playing cricket and at the edge of the sea some children paddling. This is the perfect place to stop and relax. The sun is warm and the air is fresh. It doesn’t get better than this!
