Donegal day 2 photos

There's nothing quite like a beach in windy weather. We went to Narin beach on our second day in Donegal, and the rain stopped just long enough for us to have a paddle. Katy loved the wide open spaces, and paddling in the sea of course. It wasn't as cold as I expected it to be, which was a blessing as I expected it to be freezing!

photos from Donegal

The first evening in Donegal was beautiful. We were able to sit out in the back garden until after 10pm, annd the light was perfect for photos. We were so envious of my aunt and uncle's surroundings, all these photos were taken within a 5 minute walk of their house.
Katy had great fun helping John with the lambs, sheep and chickens.

It was such a beautiful place, it was the first time I'd been there since Celine and John moved to Donegal. I will definitely go back.

Not bad for a back garden is it?

back from Ireland

and for once I took a load of photos. In all the past holidays in Ireland I have taken maybe 10 shots in total, whereas this trip I have somehow ended up with a few hundred. A warm sunny evening and a trip to Donegal helped enormously. These photos are from last Saturday night, when Mum, Katy and I went out for an early dinner and decided to go for a walk after eating along the Strand and into Burgess Park. Katy had new sandals (her 'heels' - they have a 1/4 inch 'heel') so she was happy to pose for a while.

It was nice to be out in the evening and be warm enough for no coats or cardis :)
