March goes out like a lion.

Its been an amazing day on the north Antrim coast.
A day of constantly changing scenery and showers, wind so strong that it wasn’t wise to go too close to the edge of the harbour, one moment its sunny and cold the next its windier and hailing and you can’t see more than a few hundred yards.

The view from Dunseverick towards Ballintoy church – it was relatively sunny at this point. Large waves and lots of spray.


Only a few minutes along the coast at Ballintoy harbour and the sky is darkening.


The sea is so turbulent it is smothered with white foam and Sheep Island may soon be obscured by the hail.


Along the coast road driving west you can usually depend on the view over Portbradden:


Whitepark bay – Portbradden

Whitepark bay - Portbradden

Whitepark bay is on the Atlantic coast of Co. Antrim. It’s never crowded because, although it has its on car park, there is quite a long walk across sand dunes before you reach the beach. Not for the heavily laden family who bring a car load to the beach. It is common place to find a small herd of cattle wondering close to the water’s edge and sometimes you need to watch where you place your bare feet. Facing the beach just above sea level is Portbradden – a tiny hamlet with I believe the smallest church in Ireland and a couple of newly constructed properties for sale also.
