Postcards: The Sunny Southeast (IE)

Despite the nickname, Wexford was not particularly sunny when we visited recently. Like most part of Europe, it seemed to be mired in the unescapable winter chill, accompanied by frequent showers. The transition between sunny and rainy happened often and rapidly, making it singularly difficult to predict if we could go for a walk yet not be roasting under our winter coats and/or be drenched without a brolly.

Nonetheless, maybe I present, by photos, the County of Wexford that we saw, however briefly it may have been.

Just a small note before I sign off this post, regarding the final two photos. They were taken in Wexford and Rosslare Strand respectively, and if you look at a map, the tip of Rosslare Strand actually looks across the Irish Sea towards Wexford on the west. Yup, these two photos were taken in direction that faces each other. It’s just not very obvious for the rainbow shot, as I didn’t pan enough to the right to show off Rosslare. I hope that this post from 2011, however, would give you a better idea of what I’m talking about.

That’s it for now folks. I’ll be back soon with photos from the west coast of Ireland. Stay tuned!
