Battleship Grey

26th June 2011
We are still in Co Clare and so far the weather has been really bad but it looks like it might improve today. We arrived in Fanore on Friday evening it had rained for the whole day . We stopped to look at the sea which was just so grey. It reminded me of my Dad who was himself a seaman. I was telling Patricia of a time when aged about 12 or 13 I had washed white vests with dark clothes and my Dad described them as no longer being white , but being “Battleship Grey” . This must be battleship grey I said. I had no sooner said it when a battleship appeared on the horizon !! Well I know its not a battleship the Irish don’t have any, but a naval ship all the same , but the sea is definitely “battleship grey”
