Boats In The Bay. Looking Out From Our Smallholding Kitchen Window.
One of the myriad of oil tankers that come in and out of Bantry Bay. They go to and fro from Whiddy Island oil terminal. This picture was taken a couple of weeks a go. You always know it's going to rain when the houses on the Beara peninsula look close. Cloud caps on top of Hungry Hill are another indicator that it's going to rain. Shiny rocks and the terrier eating grass are also certain indicators that it's going to rain. I always wonder how much oil the tankers use transporting the oil.
Boats fishing this very morning after the storm last night. Perhaps the local chip-shop will have some Cod tonight? Every time we go in they want to sell us Hake or Haddock. They call the chip-shop the "Chipper" in Ireland. You can't get pies or baked beans though!
I think the fishermen are heroes. They are the farmers of the sea!
