Awful weather we're having! by 

View along Whiterock bay to Sketrick Island and remains of the castle. Sketrick island is also home to Daft Eddys bar and resturant, a great watering hole on the Lough.
Daft Eddie by the by was one of a gang of smugglers of Strangford Lough who eluded the customs men continually, mainly due to ’Daft’Eddie who they never believed was a smuggler .. just the local simpleton. Daft Eddie, or The Smugglers of Strangford Lough, a book by W G Lyttle tells the story of the incredible activities of a wild band of smugglers who conducted a reign of terror around the shores of Strangford Lough in the early years of the 19th century.

As with all of the coastline of Northern Ireland,Strangford Lough is looked after by the National trust.

I’ve been working around this area of Strangford lough, Co Down,Northern Ireland, for years…awful job.. but !…Hey somebodyhas to do it!!!

    We all do have a gripe about weather but this looks pretty good to me…We have had a long cold winter that started early Autumn and now into spring and it is still winter. Someone tell the Seasons to change. Shirley

    This is the type of ‘awful’ weather that we wouldn’t mind having year round (got a dusting of ‘white stuff’ yesterday < frowning > but that’s what comes with winter in Alaska). Beautiful scenic capture. Take Care ~ Rick & Deb ~ ☺

  • LOL Yes it’s difficult but we have to perservere!!;-)
