Thanks for the link Violet! I'm sure I saw when in Howth. I love taking photos around this harbour, always a good subject. :) cheers, archrodney!

Ohhhh!! Here's me flagellating myself for missing your lovely gesture on page one and here's you missing my comment from 2009! Naughty thing :>))

I'll forgive you,,how can I talk!

Abject apologies for missing your comment from 2009, Jim, but give me a link to it now, please. I'm curious to know what I missed.

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on March 17, 2011

Ha ha!! Your'e looking at it! derrr!

Oh! Now that I've got me specs on, I scrolled up to see the photo. I didn't know I had a 'best foto' link, Jim but I did think this was one of my better pics and I'm honoured that you like it because you like boats and seashores. I was actually in UK last August, so was away from my computer for a month. Sorry! Theolfa

Theolfa~~~~ You need never apologise for that my friend..Only yesterday, I responded to mail which was posted 18 months ago!!

As for the old boat, like many of her sisters, she is possibly no more than a pile of sawdust and scrap iron!

There are but four trawlers fishing from my home town these days and they are all for sale!

The once thriving industry is doomed!

Old, but very, very charming! :-)

Sometimes I walk by the quays looking at the old boats for hours.

Oh, Marrianne, you went browsing my slideshow! I'm not often near boats of this size, and I love looking at them and remembering the many times we took the old ferry back & forth from Ireland. This old fishing boat was in Ireland. Hugs, Theolfa

I did not see that until you said so Theolfa. I often miss the mapping of a photo.

Ireland - England then?

Yes, Marianne, when I was eight years old. Culture shock!
