The Story Behind my Portrush, East Strand piece

 

 

Portrush, East Strand. This beach has been my most ventured to escape during the long months of lockdown. It has been deserted and many days over the last number of months, we've have had the beach to ourselves. It has been an amazing experience to watch life teaming back into our home town once again. We have loved watching our surfers, swimmers, sailors and our fishermen braving our wild waters once more. This piece captures the landscape, all the way to tips of the rock formation, known as the Chimneys that can be spotted when standing a-top the Giant’s Causeway stones. One of the most magical experiences I have had along this stretch of water, was setting sail aboard the Causeway Lass, to try my hand at Mackerel Fishing.  It’s hard to believe this untouched seascape is just on the edge of the bustling town of Portrush; where you will find stunning businesses which I have highlighted in the local business page in my virtual gallery at RosiesEasel.com. Please promise me you will support them when its safe to do so.
