Here is an overlooked little cove at the mouth of Rabbit Island sound. It would a nice spot for a picnic if it wasn’t for the dolphin corpse!!

Want to watch a boat being built on your dash? Then follow this tumblr. The boat being built is a Francois Vivier Beg-Meil. Beg-Meil is the same hull as Ilur but it has more of a daysailor configuration with a half deck and coamings.

There is a lovely beach at the head of Tralong bay, that is blessed by the lack of parking nearby, so it is only visited by those prepared to walk! I briefly landed on the beach the night before(as the tide was falling) but didn’t bring the camera. Interestingly the west side of the beach has been eroded by the previous winters storms, exposing tree stumps and peat bog. This forest was presumably drowned by rising sea levels, around four thousand years ago, the same sea level rise that turned lough hyne to a saltwater lake from a freshwater lake, forming the rapids I visited earlier.

Tralong bay is in between Millcove and Glandore harbour. It is also a great place for observing peregrines! As I was after beating half way up the harbour. I heard an awful racket behind me; three peregrines fighting over some food. They came tumbling down the cliff and almost ended up in the drink! This juvenile decided to take a breather low down on the cliff - cue me nearly crashing into the cliff to photograph it!

Anything good in Classic Boat? Teal is featured in the centenarians section and my photo from Baltimore Wooden Boat Festival is used! Also there is a piece about a new Ilur being launched. The title of the piece sure looks familiar!!
