“Walking is a man’s best medicine.”
Watching the Daisies Virtual Walking Festival
I feel blessed to live in Donegal, an area of outstanding natural beauty on The Wild Atlantic Way. http://www.wildatlanticway.com
“Watching the Daisies Virtual Walking Festival” will run 10 to 20 April, to inspire others to put on their walking boots, and enjoy the mighty outdoors.
The Loch Chonaill Railway Walk
The Lough Chonaill Railway Walk is just over a mile from my home, and covers 1.1 km of the route which The Lough Swilly Railway Company used to transport fish and other goods from the village of Burtonport to the city of Derry, from 1903 to 1940.

Being a watery Piscean, I love walking alongside water, and this walk certainly lifted my spirits with an abundance of beautiful subjects to photograph.

The Loch Chonaill Railway Walk is just one of many walking initiatives in Donegal. It is well worth paying it a visit.
