Wexford Sights (XVI): The Saltee Islands (II)






More photos from the Saltees, except for the last image, which is of a seal which followed our boat into the harbour.

Another beautiful set. Thanks for posting these. The flying gannets are a stunning sight, and the seal I found quite funny: it looks like it's trying to tell someone on the boat they dropped something. Or maybe that's just me.

There are a couple of very tame seals in the harbour at Kilmore Quay (where the boats comes in from the Saltees), who swim right up to the edge of your boat! I recommend viewing these photos, taken by one of our guests (http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris-no-sugar/sets/72157624708314064/) for both gannets and a fantastic seal picture.
