More Winter Storms on the Way!


This afternoon we took a drive to Weavers Point, Crosshaven, to look at the waves coming in to Cork Harbour from the Atlantic.  We were right across the bay from Roches Point Lighthouse,  at the mouth of Cork Harbour, which is right in the path of the wind.

The South of Ireland got quite a battering in the past few days with wind and high tides, and more forecast for tonight.    There were plenty white horses on the waves, though the wind was not so strong  this afternoon.  Some of the photos look pleasant, because the sun was shining, but the wind was howling, and I am so glad to be on firm ground, and not on a ship being tossed about in the waves.

Looking out my back door.

    I’ve always loved that “white horses” metaphor–it’s in the song “Long Way from Clare to Here,” I think. Do you have any idea of its genesis?

      I didn’t know that till I looked up the lyrics, as I only knew the chorus! The expression is often used for the stormy seas in the Atlantic off the west coast of Ireland, as all the foam reminds us of white horses.

    I bet it’s cold, but if I wrapped up tight I think a walk would be wonderful 🙂
