harbour rant

Just back from a quick visit to Ireland to see some of my family. Work is still ongoing at the harbour, converting it from a lovely quirky little pier to a generic marina. I have to admit that it's looking much better than last time I saw it and maybe it won't be as bad as I expected. Also, I don't live there anymore, so although I may view the place with fond nostalgia, I can't really comment on what's best for the local economy. But I still like to be grumpy and indignant about the whole thing.
