Spanish Point

We're still on the western edge of County Clare, but are moving south from the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. I'm not posting pictures of Lehinch, since my photos of the beach were pretty bleak, but it was clear that Lehinch was a big surfing spot. Surf shops and surf schools and a lot of surfers waiting for waves that, at least the day we passed through, weren't very big.


We made a quick stop at this beach on the south side of Spanish Point. I loved the broad cobble berm of dark rock and the contrasting red sandy beach. The tilting sandstone ledges are the same Paleozoic sediments we saw at the Cliffs of Moher - still dipping south.
