While staying at Helen's Tower last weekend we spent a blustery day by the water at Groomsport Harbour. There's an old fisherman's cottage there that has been kept largely in its original state which you can walk through and explore that's quite neat. It's fun to see how people lived and learn a little bit about how they built the house to stand up to the sea winds and storms. It was a quiet afternoon out rounded off by a meal at the local chippy (I do love my curry chips when we go away for the weekend!). I was dressed on theme for the location, complete with my new whale bag! This purse by the Don Fisher Shop is handmade in Spain and one of my more practical novelty purses--it holds loads of stuff and is perfect for day-trips to the beach. I'll definitely be toting it around all summer. On this day the weather wasn't ideal for long strolls by the water or loads of exploration, but we didn't really mind because when you book a stay at an old stone tower you actually want to spend most of your time at said tower. So it was a quick trip out to somewhere new for both of us and then back to our cozy tower to build a big fire and thaw ourselves out (nighttime view of the tower here)!
