The next day we took a walk along the golden sand beach and out to a small offshore island, accessible at low tide. Fishermen were perched along the rocks casting huge surf rods into the navy blue sea and hauling in fish for their evening meal. I reckon the island would be a perfect picnic spot with its sheltered bays and grassy clearing, ideal for whiling away a lazy I-wonder-what-everyone-else-is-doing-at-work kind of day.

So that was pretty much our weekend....walking, drinking, eating, browsing the wide range of attractive shops at The Mount and hanging out drinking coffee in a few of its excellent cafes. It was the perfect get-away weekend and such a joy to be together enjoying each others company.
