Foggy Photos

The cobweb and the boatI have so much to tell you. It’s been a really busy few days. I’m just going to start with a few photos for now, the other blogs can wait.Β  I finally got the chance to tick off something that has been on my ‘to do’ list for a very long time. A friend of mine arranged for a boat to take me to Coney Island (not the American one before you get all excited!), the Sligo one. I will tell you all about the trip soon when I’ve gone through the mountain of photos. The photo above was taken while I was waiting to get on the boat at Rosses Point, in fact of the photos on this blog post were taken there, I hope you like them.

Rosses Point SunriseThese photos were all taken at 10am yesterday morning. It was raining when I left home and I thought it was going to be a lousy day to go to the island, but the fog landed when I got the Sligo and I think it’s gives the photos a lovely atmosphere.

CalmRegular readers to my blog will know about my track record with boats (it’s not good), so I was delighted it was a very calm day. I didn’t feel ill (phew), nor did I fall into or out of the boat! Always a bonus.

The sun and the lighthouseWell I’ll leave you with these for now πŸ™‚

  1. Beautiful, Val. All of them. I’ve got to get over to the original Coney Island one of these days. Whenever we drive to Strandhill and see the sign for Coney Island, I’m always tempted to take that right turn and follow where it leads. I;m happy for you, too, that the weather behaved itself and your experience on the boat was a good and positive one. I love being near any body of water, but, like you, I’m not particularly crazy about boats. Then again, I’d get on a boat – even a small one – a lot quicker and with a lot less anxiety than getting into a plane (fair play to you, once again, for doing that πŸ™‚

  2. […] At the weekend, thanks to Medbh who arranged it for me, I finally got the Coney Island. Now before you get all excited and think I ended up in America I have to explain this Coney Island is in Sligo. It lies between Strandhill and Rosses Point. When it’s a low tide it’s possible to walk across by Cummeen Strand but whatever the tide there is Ewings boat taxi that runs from Rosses Point and takes about 5 or ten minutes (perfect for me as I’m not great with boats!) It was a foggy day so my first view of the island was to see it shrouded in fog, which made it all the more mystical. You can see some more of the foggy photos here. […]
