White horses passing by

I took these photographs on my phone last week on Mannin beach which is just south of Clifden. It was the last day of school so my three daughters and I headed for the beach in the afternoon with a picnic. Mannin hosts a hard to rival string of beaches along its coastline near the village of Ballyconneely. We spotted these white horses in the distance when we reached the shore.

They had spotted us too and lost no time in moving towards us.

Such a beautiful sight, almost surreal against the backdop of sand and sky.
