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.
Carrickfin Beach beckoned me as calm, sunny weather made a very welcome reappearance after Storm Callum.
The beach is rarely busy, despite its obvious beauty:
The sky remained reflected on the tide, as I neared the North end of the beach:
I walked past rocks and rock pools:
And sat in silence, simply watching the waves ebb and flow:
It soothed my Soul and reminded me that we do not have to travel far from home to relax and recharge our batteries.
