I’m out of sequence here, but want to show you the beauty of Portrush on a quiet sunny day in May.

My day had started at the very reasonable Mellon Country Hotel north west of Omagh.

After a good night’s sleep and a breakfast overlooking the majestic Sperrins I jumped into my car and instructed the Sat Nav to pick out the shortest route to Coleraine.

What a wonderful drive, incredible views, fast flowing B roads, and the odd little village to add variety to the run.

The people in my first call were so warm and friendly that I felt the day had got off to a good start.

Just a few miles along the coast was Portrush, out of season.  There were just 3 people on the beautiful sandy beach and a few kids on glorified canoes in the harbour.

Time was standing still. I took a light lunch and luxuriated in moment.

Just along the coast from a quant little cafe the skyline was dominated by a dormant amusement park.

The rides were gathering cobwebs, which would no doubt be dispelled in the forthcoming holiday period.

After an hour I was on my way again, with only a tinge of disappointment.  There were no birds! Not so much as a Herring Gull in this picturesque holiday resort.

Weird.
