Red Skies Over the Atlantic

Portstewart Red Skies are FAMOUS!

It was a sky just like this that inspired the songwriter Jimmie Kennedy to write his famous lyric, “Red Sails in the Sunset.”  This image was captured using the Fujifilm X-T2.

Red sails in the sunset
Way out on the sea
Oh, carry my loved one 
Home safely to me

She sailed at the dawning 
All day I’ve been blue
Red sails in the sunset 
I’m trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

Red sails in the sunset 
Way out on the sea
