The sea o the sea.......
































































Sunny Sunday drive. Around the winding coastal tracks checking out each of the beaches along the route. Garrarus, Kilfarrasey, Annestown, Benvoy, Boatstrand, Kilmurrin Cove........

Swims had here earlier in the year are discussed. Cliff erosion is inspected. Winter storm damage assessed.

Some slight afternoon sunshine warms the rocks. The Atlantic, full of energy and diamond lights, is a dazzling presence. We sit in silence soaking in the salty air. We are giving the old brain cells a strong dose of ozone and crashing waves. Cobwebs are instantly cleared from the brain.

A wet dog, head cocked to one side, stares at a black stone, and whines at his owners, but today this performance all goes unnoticed.

  2. It looks like it was a lovely day - your sea shots are beautiful - you are lucky to have the coast within easy reach. I wish.

  3. Awesome images-- the beach with the big rocks is very like the Pacific coast here. I am drawn to it, like you, and I'm comforted to think of it being there always, before us, after us. And I so love the sounds of the waves meeting the land.

  6. Very dramatic pics. I know that little beach at Annestown...I visited it several times when staying in Waterford some years ago.

  7. I think we forget about the sea at this time of year. Autumn's display takes over. However, the sea has its allure now as well. Your images demonstrate that beautifully! I want to reach in and caress those watery waves.

  9. Beautiful pics and thoughts. I've just got back from "our" sea: all was grey and green and khaki. I love the way it is never the same.

  13. I found these wonderful photos yesterday and started getting homesick. Annestown has a lot of fond memories for me. It inspired me to take a stroll beside the sea and my soul feels better for it! Thank you!
