Waiting for the Tide

Waiting for the Tide


It was another bright sunny crisp day, a chilly minus 3ºC in the morning
rising to 9ºC by afternoon.
As we work throughout lunchtime on Tuesdays, I get home early so I had
plenty of time to go for a walk before the light faded. We live on the
edge of Dundalk Bay and the tidal mudflats attract thousands of
migratory birds each winter. It's a peaceful place to walk, to watch
the changing light and listen to the lonesome call of the curlew.

Water has such a place in our lives doesn't it? I don't know about that boat though - is that a hole in the side?

at this time of year we could all do with a lift above the mire...warm light on stranded boat and reflection offers a note of optimism early in spring...the deep purple swath is electric...V
