Sunset at Flood Gates, Newtownards

After Eileen and I left Castle Espie (yesterday's post) we travelled to my 
'old caravan' where we had lunch, then while returning homeward we visited other parts of the Lough shore, finishing at the Flood Gates to see the sunset.  The tide was out (again) but if you are very clever you will see hundreds of Brent Geese, 2 Heron, Redshank in photos 5 & 6.  
The last photo was taken by Eileen.

So once again, this is the time for coffee, sit back and watch the slide show. Enjoy.












Thank you for visiting my post today.

Many thanks for all those people who left comments on any of my posts.  
I appreciate everyone of them.

  3. Lovely area. Never been myself - even though most of my first wife's family live thereabouts. A shame. Perhaps one day?
