So hey, i’m writing a novel!

Yeah, you heard right. Found out about the NaNoWriMo challenge and signed up pronto! Why? Because i’m a sucker for punishment! They do say everyone has a story in them. Whether or not I can actually pull it out, you’ll have to wait and see. I may just get to finish a story i’ve had in my head for a while or you may get to see me fail spectacularly!

Building castles in the sky

Here are the ruins of Ballybunion castle and forte built by the Fitzwilliams back in the day (that’s some history for ye!). I’m a pretty fanciful person so castles and old buildings are right up my alley. This one is situated at the edge of a cliff overlooking Ballybunion beach. This beach is my favourite place to be especially during the summer. There is also a cliff walk on the other side, that boasts amazing views of the ocean and the next town over. If you’re ever in North Kerry i’ll encourage to stop by. YOu won’t be disappointed!

Summer is truly gone
