The dogs snuffling round the beach on Tuesday.
As the holiday week in Ireland goes on, I can feel my resolve to resist delicious food weakening. It starts with a few bites of potato salad then a nibble of apple tart, a splodge of coleslaw and before you know it, you're chowing down on a plate full of pavlova!!
Well, I'm not there yet but I could see the warning signs today so I've had to have a stern talk to myself.
I went for my usual 6 mile hilly bike ride this morning and then a 5 mile walk with the family along the beach and back this afternoon so the exercise has been good at least.
We're having a great time and have taken loads of great photos so all is well as long as I don't weaken. Tonight, for the first time, I want to have a drink too. Will see how it goes and limit it to a couple. Wish me luck.
