European Vacation – October 2/19 – Wexford, Ireland – Part 8 – Harbourside – That Won’t be a Good Shot, Without a Pirate in it!!

As I may have mentioned, Wexford was a picturesque harbourside town. That being said, we still had not spent much time along the harbourfront.

After our walk at Raven Point, we headed back to Wexford for an afternoon coffee at Creamer. It was a nice break and when we were finished, we opted to walk some more along the harbourside. Afterall, Hurricane Lorenzo was headed our way tomorrow and the weather would not be nearly so nice.

We first walked toward the bridge over the inlet to Ferrybank, so we could get a good look back at the town.

On the bridge, we had a good view of both sides of the harbour, as well as a shot back at the town, with its pretty church steeples and the fishing fleet in port.

It seemed to be slack tide, as not a lot of water was moving in or out. We slowly wandered back into town to take a closer look at the fishing boats.

It was at that point we heard the voice from behind us…”That won’t be a good shot, without a pirate in it. Looking around, we gazed upon a local character who engaged in spirited conversation with us, before swaggering off down the quayside. Can you say Arrrrrrrrrrrrr?

Back to reflecting. What little water remained in the harbour was as smooth as glass and with the flat light and pretty cloudscape made for some beautiful shots of the boats at anchor…..

…and the birdlife.

The views back to the town and out to the sea from this vantage point were also nice. Tomorrow, we were in for it, but today had been picture perfect.
