Ramblings for the Weekend....

Sorry it's been awhile since I last blogged. Time seems to be flying away on me. I have been busy around the house and with work. Lots of gardening and decorating. With Summer here the days are much longer and plenty of time is being spent outside to make the most of the long bright evenings. Above are some images from around my home today. I picked the foxglove up the lane last night and I also have a posy of flowers on my dresser in the living room. I have my new couch bought for my sitting room and the final photo is of my sitting room. I have it fully painted and waiting on the fireplace to be installed on Tuesday. Here are a few more photos of my travel over the past week with work and leisure. Hope you are having a nice weekend....

Images from County Leitrim - One of the Most Rural Areas of Ireland

As you are all aware I love spending my time in rural Ireland. Here are a few images I took around County Leitrim. County Leitrim is a very rural county with beautiful unspoilt landscapes.

Summer Sunshine in Ireland

I am so delighted that the weather has improved here in Ireland. The countryside looks wonderful in the summer sunshine. I love spending the evenings walking around the farm. Rural Ireland is so beautiful with blue skies. Here are some of my photographs which I took this evening after 7 o' clock, so you just imagine what a lovely day it was.
Below are some photographs of one of the fields on the farm. The fields were mowed this evening, ready to cut the silage tomorrow.

Bird Watching...

Just thought I'd share with you a few images of two of the birds I spotted out on the lake this evening. The first one is a Cormorant as far as I know (all you bird watcher out there can correct me if I am wrong). It is the same size as a a large goose. He spent a long time just standing around and then took off in flight. The second image is one of the resident Mute Swans which are so elegant. There are lots of them out on the lake all year round. They are very graceful and I love watching them.

A visit to Bundoran County Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way

Still waiting for Summer to arrive here in Ireland. In the meantime here are some photos of the seaside town of Bundoran in County Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way. I visit quite often and enjoy the long walks along the cliffs. It looks so much better when the sun is shining too.

There is a great indoor water park for the family just along the sea front. Along the cliff walk called Rougey Walk there are great views back over the town and also to Tullan Strand which is a haven for surfers. You can spot the Fairy Bridges along the walk and the  wishing chair where people have made their wishes and left some money for the fairies. The views of the Atlantic Ocean are breathtaking and you will see some more of them if you explore my blog.
The beach in the town itself is very family friendly while the beach at Tullan Stand is used for surfing and other adventure sports. It is really pretty with a dramatic backdrop of sand dunes and hills. 

The town itself has lots of shops and restaurants and the Great Northern Hotel, Golf and Leisure Centre is perched on the cliff top overlooking the  ocean.

So when your planning your next trip out along the Wild Atlantic Way be sure to stop by the seaside town of Bundoran.

Around my home today....

Hello everyone. Imagine it is June already, the year is flying by. The first day of Summer here in Ireland has been a wash out, lots of rain and wind. At last the sun has made an appearance. It was so bad with rain that I have spent most of the day indoors. We even had to light the fire as it was so cold. I am really looking forward to my holidays this year as I need sunshine!! For June I hope to do some decorating around the house. We also have family coming to visit so that should be fun. Today is a bank holiday here in Ireland so I have a short week at work and I am even comtemplating taking some days off later in the week too. Have you any nice plans for June?
Below are a few photos from around my home today as I have spent most the time indoors.
