Frothy Fountainstown

Heading for shelter from the SW wind in Fountainstown on Saturday morning seemed like a good idea – but the water was out so far the wind was really whipping up the shallows.  Still, it was great fun and completely safe as you could stand just about everywhere all the way out to Ringabella!

Denis in the distance – blustery wind whipping up the shallow sea.

The triathletes getting ready for Lanzarote, Nice etc. are all looking for time in the open water now – Saturday wasn’t the ideal start!
