stranded until

Down by the pier, these boats have been sitting there for most of the summer.  Not sure what their issues are but maybe they will get back in the water sometime soon.  Time will tell.

throw it

I happened to be walking down by the pier when I saw this dog.  He was playing fetch with a stick with his person and was waiting for it to be returned.   Unfortunately for the dog, the game of fetch had ended.  He wasn't ready to leave but his person was and he finally gave up and left.
The white house you see is the Ark House which I highlighted earlier.

the rainbow

This was the prize at the end of my coastal walk the other day.  It's amazing to see such beauty!

a quiet stroll

It was nice to be out walking with such a wonderful breeze and hardly any people on the path.  A good time to think and enjoy the peace and quiet.  Enjoy the day wherever you are!

ship on lough foyle

While walking on the Coastal Walk we saw this ship heading toward Greencastle.  It is flying the Flag of England.  I believe this ship participated in the Irish Marine Search and Rescue Demo that was held here a week ago.

house with flowers

On one of my walks on the R241 road, I passed this lovely little house.  It's not too big, not to small, feels just right.  The flowers add a lovely touch!

I'm watching you

When walking past these guys a few days ago, they rushed to the fence.  They were expecting food but we didn't deliver.  They soon turned about and went back to munching on the grass.

This house is right up the road from us and it has a lovely view, don't you agree.

a view

I happened to come across this view through a  fence on one of my walks around town.  I do love the look of the red door.

miss marple

When I first saw this house, it reminded me of one of Agatha Christie's famous detectives, Miss Marple.  I could envision her walking out that front front door.  Her house had lots of flowers and greenery, a lot more than this one but yes, I think Miss Marple would approve of this fine house.

colour everywhere

Around town you see flowers everywhere.  They're hanging on buildings, in yards, everywhere you look.  The next couple of days this is what you'll see, more flowers and more colour.  Enjoy!

mini junkyard?

Guess this boat's dredging days are over.  I came across this beauty when I was up in the area to recycle our glass and cans.  I found some other stuff there and was wondering what was up in this mini junk collecting area.  No answers but a great photo opp.

some kind of farm equipment

grounded

This boat has been here in the same location since I've been here.  The second photo is one I took three months ago.  Not much has changed.

front garden

Passed this house on the way to the beach and I loved the way these flowers add so much beauty to the front garden.  It was a dull overcast day but the flowers added some much needed colour.  I also like the tree.  It's a monkey puzzle tree which I never heard of  until I looked it up.

free little library

The free little library is located at the beginning of the shore walk which is straight ahead.  That's the kid's play ground you see in the background.  Heading out or heading back from your walk stop and take a look.   If you have a book to drop off, please do!  With the tourists coming in to town, the selection changes daily.  We usually drop off a book every now and then plus once in a while we do find one to take too :)

buncrana beach

This past Tuesday we went to Buncrana to do some grocery shopping.  Taking the bus and our backpacks, we headed out to catch the noon bus.  One hour later we are in Buncrana.  The bus returns at 4:20 so we have about 3 hours to kill.   So, off to the beach we went, a 10 minute walk from our bus stop.  It's always refreshing to walk on a beach no matter where it is and explore new places.  It's nice to live a simple life and enjoy what is there in front of you.
Have a great day wherever you are!
