After a night and fabulous breakfast in Moville we drove around the Inishowen Peninsula, enjoying the charm of this countryside.
Panorama of the winding road and stormy skies. Somewhere around here we stopped at Malin Head, the most northerly point in Ireland and almost got caught in a heavy storm. Raining.Stopped raining.A tiny hamlet with cows.A variety of eclectic goods at the Curiosity Shop.These items seem particularly Irish, making me wonder what other curiosity shops around the world would contain?Orange Crocosmia grow in abundance along the roads, bent under the wind and rain. (Yes, raining again.)The ‘Wild Atlantic Way was marked on road signs as a white zigzag on a blue background. Abandoned church lying in ruins.A whole village that seemed abandoned, every building with its windows boarded-up and painted as there were still people there.Another building in the village with its door boarded-up and painted bright colours, something that seemed popular to do with abandoned buildings in this region of Ireland.Burrs up against a barb wire fence.We stopped at a stoney beach and the sun came out briefly. Castle, maybe not abandoned.The Inishowen Peninsula of County Donegal’s ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ route on a placemat.
