Had an appointment in the town of Newry so with the weather spoiling us today with great sunshine and heat, I headed there early. Walked some of the canal down through to the Albert basin.
First up is a sculpture caller the Newry Docker. Link here for more info .A sort distance along the basin some boats are moored up.
Here’s a couple that caught my eye, they stood out with their masts echoing the church steeples in the background. Would have been a great day to be sailing has there was a gentle breeze.
This is looking along the Buttercrane Quay, you can see the underwater vegetation here has the early morning sun filters through from the trees. Close to this spot a Grey Heron was feeding along the other bank. Nice to see these birds close up. Must be used to people has they normally fly off.
While this shot shows the Buttercrane Centre reflected in the canal. link
Then it was time to meet some friends at Grounded Espresso Bar on the corner of Merchants Quay and Monaghan Street. Good coffee and time with friends rounded off a great morning in Newry.
Thank You for visiting.

The second shot is my favourite like a picture postcard.
I liked the way the boat’s mast and the church steeple and the square tower from another church to the right. Draws the eye across and into the scene.
It was a beautiful morning (8.30am) for a walk along this part of the canal before it got to busy.
