What a Beach

We've had a few good days of warm weather and sunshine here in Derry so yesterday, Barry and I took a trip down to Buncrana Beach and Inch Island.  The water was still as cold as a welldigger's arse in Alaska but we just sat on the sand and soaked up the sun. 

When we weren't sitting on the beach, we were poking around in the water.  Which is where we found this thing.  What the heck is it??  If you know, let us know because we tried googling it but came up with nothin'.  It was dead...that is the ONLY  reason we got as close as we did to it. A marine worm?

Driving around Inch Island, we saw a few wittle itty bitty cutie lambs.  Aren't they precious?  I just wanted to pick them up and hug them...but...

I don't think mama sheep would have liked that very much.  She was very intimidating.

Then, we stumbled upon some ducks and swans.  They came towards us and I felt really bad because they thought we had food for them, but all we had was a camera.  Sorry birdies. 


  1. What a perfect day! I won't lie that worm-thing gives me the heebie jeebies. No idea what it is, but I'm pretty sure I'll have nightmares about it. :)

    Those little lambs are adorable! I so want to steal one!

  2. @Katie--I skin has been crawling since I saw that thing. I think it is a King Ragworm...I don't care if I ever see another one haha.

  3. Oh, lovely photos!! How I miss Ireland when I see them! There was a fantastc beach close to where we used to live, and som other further away.
