I felt a bit like Rebecca in Manderley as we approached this bay from the water. This is the area of Carnalea and all of this south shore of Belfast Lough was known as the "Gold Coast" of Ulster. In the 1800s the railway line was built just inshore and the wealthy merchants built their houses all along this coast beside it. This wee bay has a very secluded beach which is now part of the public path that runs from Belfast to Bangor. It was a great wee sheltered spot on Sunday in the southerly breeze!


Not a photographic gem - just me enjoying being on the water :-)) It is nice to pockle instead of racing :-))
