Quality pictures Mick T, the walk around Bundoran on a winters day will clear the cobwebs, "possibly remove your skin", as the wind would cut you in two, but how you would feel alive after a stroll along the coast & cliff walks. The memory I have is the taste of the salt air," You could almost eat it" how your face would tingle as it was battered by the elements, the wind, so strong it would push you back.. you had to fight to take a step forward. We all have a love of the ocean a quote from :
John F. Kennedy President of USA
All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean.
And when we go back to the sea -- whether it is to sail or to watch it -- we are going back from whence we came.


John F. Kennedy President of USA (1917 - 1963)
