Some happenings that provided a moment’s amusement.
The dancing vans of Haughton’s Shore
So there we were, back in 2003, at Haughton’s Shore on the Shannon–Erne Waterway, when three vans drove in. And drove around. And took up various positions ….
No, I’ve no idea either. But the firm of Brendan Wisley is based in Ballinamore, County Leitrim, not far from Haughton’s Shore; here is a Sunday Tribune article about it.
The only explanation I’ve been able to think of is that there might have been a photographer present, taking pics for publicity material, but I couldn’t see anyone. And I didn’t walk down to look: that would have spoiled it.
The Powerwalker of Portrunny
Put on white socks, get into car, drive to Portrunny, walk purposefully down one pier and back, walk down another and back, walk down a third and back, walk to the other end of the harbour and back, get into car, go away. Don’t talk to anyone.
The wedding photos
During two days on Lough Allen, we saw only two other boats moving. One paid a short visit to Spencer Harbour, but that apart we had the place largely to ourselves — until the wedding arrived.
No religious or civil ceremony appeared to take place; as far as we could see, the sole purpose of the visit was to take photographs.
