wall collapse

on the side of the coastguard building we had a small building which wasn't used for anything.  I think it was a small place to park a car many years ago.  With the strong gusty winds we had during the week, the outside wall blew down.  Our neighbor parks his car in the space you see on the left.  Luckily it wasn't damaged so the other day he started to lower the remaining wall so it wouldn't be a problem.  Next month, he will rent a dumpster (skip) to have the cement blocks hauled away.

this is the front, trees had been growing inside for years.  It had a door, an opening for a window and no roof.  Not very sturdy for strong winds.  So the collapse was the loud noise we heard on Sunday night.  It's rather interesting, nobody really paid attention to the building.

Boathouse Restaurant

 is now opened.  The owners are the same people who run the Seafood Shack down at the pier.  I first showed this building when they started working on it back in the beginning of May.  They did a great job and it looks fantastic.  Hopefully it will be as popular as the Seafood Shack.

storm atiyah

arrived here on Sunday  Rain, gusty winds and thunde all through the day and evening.  I opened our door and took this photo of St. John's Church of Ireland.  It is on the road above us and with the leaves gone, you can see it.
