There are times when you find yourself somewhere that you didn’t expect to be and it feels surreal.
Well, that’s how it was for me the other evening when I found myself with a gang of lads who were bursting to go swimming at Badger’s Cove in Dunmore East here in Co. Waterford.
While they took to the water, I felt drawn up the Coastal Path by the last dance of the setting sun.
Gulls were gliding silently overhead, making their last forays of a long day:
As the sun faded, a soothing haze draped over the Coastal Path and far beneath, the full sea swayed ever so gently.
I knew I wouldn’t have time to walk to the end before night drifted in. The most magical moment of all was in the turning round and seeing the blades of grass silhouetted against the painted sky.
Have you found yourself embraced by any magical stolen moments recently?
