I went for a drive along the coast this lunch time just because I felt like it. Along the way I drove through Donaghadee and remembered that my great aunt Cissie used to take a house there for six months of the year in the 60s, which isn't quite as grand as it sounds. The house was on the sea front and had a bench outside on the footpath where Aunt Cissie sat in the sunshine all afternoon looking out over the harbour and the lighthouse, her walking stick in one hand, her bloomers hanging down below her skirt,  smoking her pipe and helloing everybody that passed by. I identified the house she returned to every year easily enough, but it's since become a public lavatory.

A public lavatory? What a sad end for a house on the sea front.

@LadyDuck My Aunt Cissie called a lavatory "the necessary".

I like the contrast between the colourful houses and the dark sky.

@maluse Yes, it's rather dramatic.

What a nice way to spend our days after we have gotten to an age where we don't do much else. A public lavatory huh? Rather sad.
