We had a short and sweet meeting for December because it was party time! We had a very enjoyable evening in The Park Hotel, Dungarvan where we were wined and dined to perfection!
Inspite of the shorter days members have been taking many opportunities to catch beautiful sunrises and sunsets, along with a big huge Super Moon thrown in for good measure! Now it is festive time and trips have been made to Winterval in Waterford, Santa’s Grotto’s in many secret areas throughout the county and beyond, Christmas lights and still or stormy water shots along the coast and even some snow images from the Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains …. We have been busy!
