There are some fabulous Victorian houses along the Front Strand in my home town of Youghal and I thought I would take a nice long walk along the beach and get a few shots for Thursday Doors this week. The exercise was good but unfortunately the fresh sea air only increased my appetite and I arrived home hungry and ready to eat, which defeated the purpose of walking off those calories. I did manage to stop myself having dessert though.
Judging by the amount of seaweed strewn about the place I would say there was quite a high tide this morning along with a very choppy sea.
With the view they’ve got, I don’t think the residents mind too much about some fertilizer landing in their front gardens on a stormy day – as long as it stays out of the house.
And now for a little bit of history about an unexpected visitor to the area in 1946. My apologies for the bad quality but I snapped the image below from a noticeboard on the beach. I’ve enlarged the photo so you can more easily read the content.
