She often takes us to Coney Island, which isn't far away, made famous by the Van Morrison song of the same name. Not really an island to be fair, but it isn't that hard to see why this gentle seaside spot is packed full of happy memories for him. Just something special and uplifting about it.
We always seem to adopt an extra dog when we walk around the peninsula here. A collie this time, obviously waiting by the beach for the next lot of visitors to pass by. A sort of free exercising service for its owners!
And you never know what you're going to come across on a walk, do you? I've never seen a seal pup up close like this in the wild. Quite amazing really. At first we were worried it might be injured, but on closer inspection it looked fine and soon slipped back into the sea. Definitely a moment the kids won't forget. Mum let a friend know who lives near by, just so she could keep an eye out for the pup, in case its mother didn't come back. There's a seal sanctuary not too far away.
I didn't take many other photos as my phone battery goes flat so quickly at the moment, but did catch this rainbow as we come out of the supermarket in Downpatrick. I used a filter just to enhance the colours and contrast, and it seems to have come out okay. Better than most of my rainbow shots anyway!
