The story behind the image
We drove down the Irish east coast towards Dublin and stopped at Skerries, a busy town about 30 km north of Dublin. It had a small working harbour and several nice restaurants.
Once we has checked in at the B&B for the night we wanted to see the harbour. Much to our astonishment, the water was gone almost completely from the basin. Ebb tide! And the sailing yachts were bizarrely standing in the muddy sand. What a sight!
We returned in the morning. Much to our relief, the water had returned, and all the yachts were nicely anchored as if nothing had happened. And the weather had improved, too.
