Donegal Spring break

view from our cottage

The first week of my spring break and J's only week was spent mostly in Donegal. It wasn't sunny but there was no rain so we spent a lot of time walking and a lot of that was on the beach.









 Murvagh beach was at the bottom of our lane so that was our first outing knowing how much we all love the beach especially Smudge.




There was barely a breeze and Smudge wasn't too keen on leaving.













It took her a day to settle in as she followed us in and out of every room. It looked like she was frightened we would leave her.




We were all tired after the sea air and walking.



Donegal Castle





 







 Donegal town was fairly busy so after visiting the Castle we drove further west to more beaches!!!







Malin Bay was so beautiful and it was obvious how the sheep were so used to people sharing their land.



One little lamb was feeding as we approached.


As we went further round toward Ardara we stopped at the little folk village at Glen Comcille.
















Time for a walk at the cliffs at Bundoran.











I had brought my art materials with me but since I forgot to bring the paper it was knitting, crochet and reading.

 J had tv to watch which was the only down side as I love the peace and quiet.

 We took the opportunity to call with family on the way back home. We had a wander with mum in her garden with all it's Spring blooms.
