Good Seaside Fences

 Hi! Welcome to my new blog especially for posting photos of my trips and outings in the lovely countryside of Northern Ireland and sometimes even farther afield!

Some of you might have visited my first blog, Preferably Prim, about my crafts and stitching hobbies, but it was going in all directions, hence why I decided to put similar interests in separate blogs.

I would greatly appreciate you following with GFC on my sidebar as I hope to share more of our busy summer trips, though I hasten to add that I am a very amateur photographer!! I just enjoy it and hope you do too!

These are pictures taken earlier this week in Newcastle County Down along the promenade, with views of our beloved Mourne Mountains in the background. (More of those in future posts).

This first photo looks northward ... recently modernised stainless steel fencing...

This is south to the Mournes...

A little further along we cross the new bridge over the Shimna river

A new feature on the promenade was this 5 ft crab claw sculpture.  Fishing in the Irish Sea is a big industry along this coast.

As we left the promenade to head into town, I spied this beautiful wrought iron work railing.  I really liked the stars along the underside!  Click to enlarge.

A very lovely morning for a seaside stroll. Hope you enjoyed!
