Today we visited Grace Neill's in Donaghadee again for a meal with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson but this time to celebrate their wedding anniversary. great music, great food and, most important of all, great company. As the weather was still pleasant on the way home we decided to pay a visit to the Esplanade in Ballyholme and sit on the terrace for a while enjoying the last of the afternoon sunshine. As I looked down the esplanade I couldn't help but think that it reminded me of houses on the isalnd of Burano. Maybe not just as warm but just as colourful.
