Sunset sail to Lambay Island
By bnitz on Nov 07, 2004
We had another great sail Saturday. High tides were at about 6:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. so we decided on a late afternoon sail out to a Lambay island. We saw the tall pole marking the dangerous Burren Rocks. We didn't get too close, Irish lights gives its position as Latitude: 53° 29'.30 N, Longitude: 06° 02'.46 W. Turf smoke was rising from the chimney of one of the cottages on the island and the wind turbine was turning at a modest speed. Cattle were grazing near the beach and we could almost see the castle hidden in the trees. The island is privately owned so we could look but not touch. We sailed home into the sunset. The color of the sea and sky were beautiful but difficult to capture on digital film.
