from our drive on the Donegal Peninsula…
From Marble Hill we carried on to the windswept sandy Traemore Beach. We made our way down a long sandy beach.The beach had stones of an unusual rose pink colour; perhaps rhodonite? or maybe a microscopic pink coral? At any rate it is close to the colour of the heather and therefore would be an interesting choice for my ‘Irish’ jewelry. The blustery day was perfect for windsurfers who crowded one end of the beach.We scrambled up the nearby dunes. And found abandoned and non-too-seaworthy boats on the other side. Further along we found windsurfers gearing up for that windy day.Annotated map of Donegal’s ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ route on a placemat.

Beautiful photos! I’m from Oregon, so am used to those cloudy, windswept days at the beach. It looks like you forgot your kite!
Ooh, a kite would have been fun!
Oh, and almost every time I’ve been to the Oregon Coast it’s been raining and once blowing so hard that the power went off everywhere. I still love it – so beautiful!
