European Vacation – October 2/19 – Wexford, Ireland – Part 5 – Raven Point

Now out of the woods, we saw that it was some significant distance to the shore and the promised view of Wexford. We decided to go for it and worry about our return path later. This would definitely increase the distance beyond 6.8 km (4.3 mi.).

Wexford view from Raven Point
A tiny snail caught our eye
The Point was interspersed with marshy areas, perfect for waterbird nesting, which is what the area is famous for.
Sunshine gleams on the mudflats at low tide.
This poor jelly fish got left high and dry as the tide receeded
Marshy ground loving flowers abounded
Geese fattening up
Small marshy wet areas were left after the tide went out
Gulls were enjoying feeding and squabbling in the shallow water
The main trail around the Point
Salt water plants
Looking a lot like Cavendish Beach in Prince Edward Island.
Sand dunes have been forming here since the 1600s.

At the top of a dune, we found the beach and our path home….. Next post

  1. Your photos are full of live and warmth. At the moment, with dark sky and never ending rain, it’s hard to imagine sunny Ireland. But, it’s already March, so spring is definitely on it’s way. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day. Aiva

    1. Ah, Aiva. I could not imagine how long a grey winter must be. Here everything is bright and white. Blue sky, bright sun and high winds are starting to melt the snow. Hope you get some blue skies soon. Thanks for reading. Allan
