Personal Post – Just simple straight forward holiday snaps

We spend a lot of time in Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare, where my husbands parents are from, mostly we go for a few days but recently we spent a week there to finish off our summer holidays.
I recorded our week down west on my phone instead of my SLR – just something a little bit different from my normal edited photos, where I don’t upload RAW files, I don’t crop,I don’t straighten, don’t do this, don’t do that !!

Fanore beach is a fabulous beach and the children love to swim, jump in the waves, go on their body boards and soon to hope to take surf lessons …

Horse & Pony racing returned to Ballyvaughan in 2010 after a 33 year absence, afraid we didnt have much luck but the children enjoyed the fun fair …
