During our stay on the North Coast in April, we saw an advertisement for Damhead Railway. This attraction is only open on certain days throughout the year, and having never been before I thought my two boys would enjoy it.
It is no secret that I love Portstewart Strand. Two miles of soft golden sand, managed by the National Trust. Undoubtedly, my love of this beach is in part due to the happy memories I have of playing here as a child. There was nothing better than packing up the car with a picnic and heading to the beach for the day. Now, I am thrilled to be able to do the same for my children! And sometimes we even manage to stay for a few days!
As a treat this Mother’s Day my family informed me that we were going for an outing to Portstewart. I love Portstewart. I love the beach, the independent shops and the range of cafes and restaurants to satisfy the fussiest of appetites.
Looking out the window the skies were grey and I decided that to make sure we enjoyed the day preparation was essential.
