This week’s Bikes in Bloom post attracted a lot of lovely feedback, and many of you commented on the natural beauty of my village, located in Donegal, Ireland.
Your have inspired me to share this post once again, which includes a collection of photographs, showcasing my homeland.
A secret location on one of my favourite walks
My first post The Power of Place featured this photograph. I am keeping its location top secret!
A quiet beach in Carrickfin
I was the only person there that day!
A fence near Mullaghderg Lake
Fences was my first entry in “Dutch Goes the Photo Challenge”, and I included the following photographs in this post.
The road to Dooey Beach
A stretch of coastline near Dungloe
These photographs made an appearance in The Rosses – part of Jacqueline’s “Echoes of my Neighbourhood” photographic challenge.
A quiet cove near Mullaghderg Beach
Sea Thrift growing in lots of nooks and crannies
Errigal Mountain – Donegal’s highest peak.
The Boat Strand, Carrickfin
Carrickfin featured a photograph of The Boat Strand, taken on a hot summers day when I just had to go to the beach! That post finished with a poem about the end of the Celtic Tiger, and the loss of so many jobs.
National Geographic Traveller (UK) recently named Donegal as “The Coolest Place on the Planet. “
I hope this award will turn the tide of change…
You can read more about life in Donegal in my memoir “Watching the Daisies” available from all good online bookstores.
