It’s been a busy week and after an unusual amount of rushing around last night, we final settled down in front of the television around 8.30pm and I was indulging in a little Facebooking. My Mynott promptly started nagging me about some special phenomenon and Ciara was chatting with friends wittering about the same phenomenon. We looked at each other and that was it, I rushed upstairs to change out of my pjs, Ciara put a cosy coat on over the top of hers, we grabbed a couple of cameras and jumped into the car. I realised as soon as we reached the beach, it would have been a good idea to have grabbed a head torch too, but hey ho, we managed to stumble our way towards the beach virtually unscathed and scramble up the bank to admire the most beautiful light display.
We stood and admired the display for quite some time. It was a magical experience. There were so many people wandering along the sea front enjoying the show, the waves lapped the beach, the sky was full of stars and the colony of seals calling on the sand bank all added to the extraordinary atmosphere. It was fabulous
There were a couple of fellas on the beach in front of us doing a bit of photography and as they collected their gear and left they stopped for a quick chat and to show us their photographs. They were very pleased with themselves and had obviously had a fabulous. One of them promised to post his photographs on his Facebook page and I asked to share them. Here are two of them.
