This must be the most photographed cottage ..... and I must confess I am guilty of taking many, many photos of it... But it's hard not to photograph when it's on your doorstep and the changing late usually produces so many colours, not to mention the changing tides and waves.
Summer has officially ended and autumn has arrived. While we have experienced a somewhat Indian summer here on there east coast of Ireland in the last few weeks, there has been a change in the last few days. Mornings and evenings are chillier and the dark evenings are closing in. At time of writing this blog on the last day of September, Met Éireann are warning us of Hurricane Lorenzo. A Yellow Status warning is in place for Thursday with winds and heavy rain predicted. Lets hope it will have lost most of its force before it hits our coastline !!
Situated on the east coast of Ireland in Co Meath and together with the neighbouring villages of Bettystown & Mornington, Laytown is approx 50 km north of Dublin. And is just over 11 km south of Drogheda. Laytown is a small village but has increased in population over the years due to its proximity to Dublin and has become part of the commuter belt. Having moved to Laytown in January 2003, we have become one of the many 'blow-ins' to take up residency here. Since then we have walked this beach many a time. It is a dog walkers dream.
With each changing season and Ireland's unpredictable climate, Laytown beach never fails to impress.From Sunrise to Sunset

So the next time you are looking for new destination to visit, take a trip and visit our beautiful beach here in East Meath. In the meantime I will still continue to document this through the camera lens.
