Lahinch Promenade County Clare
There is nothing like a nice stroll in a seaside town along a promenade with the sound and movement of the ocean as a vibrant backdrop to awaken the senses....
....Lahinch is such a place, it has a nice seafront promenade that is just perfect for a short walk to blow away the cobwebs.
Come the weekends this is a busy little place with families and people out for the day enjoying the delights that being at the seaside evokes in one and all.
The prom at Lahinch is only a couple of hundred metres long at most but the walk can be lengthened by continuing along the the sandy path that skirts the golf course. This eventually ends up at the bridge and by returning along the road a nice loop walk taking about 30 minutes can be undertaken.
Or if the tide is out one can double back along the shore line by walking on the flat compacted sand that once seen the famous Travelling Trollop a B-24 Liberator bomber on route to Prestwick in Scotland from Maine land on the beach after losing its way in thick fog.
It is unlikely that a similer event will occur these days but even without the excitement of a plane landing there is no doubting the charm and allure of Lahinch beach and its quaint little promenade whatever the weather.
The shot is a view of the start of the promenade at the town end.
