At Red Strand

We were walking back having spent some time exploring the rock pools when four horses and their riders came down to the sea.  The sun was low in the sky and so as they came towards us they were silhouetted, with the headland and lighthouse behind them.  They took it in turns to canter through the surf from one end of the beach to the other, it was a wonderful thing to watch…

We took a day off to go and do some exploring in West Cork. Having a look at the map we thought that the coastline around Galley Head (between Clonakilty and Rosscarbery) looked interesting. We were amazed at just how beautiful it was, with a fantastic beach at Red Strand as well as the spectacular lighthouse shown in the pictures here.

I love the symbolism of a lighthouse perched up high on a rugged and rocky coastline. It reminds me of Christ “the Light of the world” and also as the rock of ages and of course the rock of our Salvation.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I shall never be shaken. (Psalm 62:1b, 2)
