This lovely scene vies with yesterdays visit to Claudy in County Derry for sheer beauty! The wee boat on the rocks looks lonesome while its colleague appears to be under full sail in the background. Given the stillness of the water it seems unlikely that it will be getting much wind to fill that sail? By the way is that what they would call a "lateen"???
