Pier Steps

Pier Steps
Steps on the pier in Bray, Co. Wicklow. It’s easily been about 4/5 years since I was last in Bray and this time only decided to go there after a quite lost drive around Dalkey and Killiney. It was bloody cold and bloody windy, but I had to get the beach fix I’ve been after for quite a while. The coldness of the wind was soon forgotten after a nice hot chocolate from the happy pear in Greystones though!

    Well, this is an amusingly gritty photo. Amusing for me, that is, because I recognised it instantly! Which is sort of depressing, because while it makes for a dramatic photo, thegrittiness could also be described as mankiness, really, couldn\'t it. Did you like the beach? When I was a kid, those stones weren\'t there, and there used to be a ten foot drop from the railings to the beach below!

  2. I\'ve written about the steps up to the pier in Bray in my historical fiction, \'Hitler and Mars Bars\' – about a boy\'s apprehension climbing them.

    Not \'lost\', as such, just \'exploring\'… šŸ™‚

    Jo, I\'m not madly in love with the beach there, but it\'s better than a kick in the head with a pointy boot..

    Bray Head makes up for it. Walking up the promenade is good. Specially in the evening.

    And. There seems to be a gelateria there opposite the aquarioum,if it\'s still there this summer. Gelato!!
