The Glory of Donegal
Had a lovely ‘family’ walking weekend – small group of 5 who seemed to enjoy themselves thoroughly as the pictures will show.
Horn Head showed its splendour in bright sunshine and the McSwynne’s Gun Loop walk was thoroughly enjoyed – the younger members especially enjoyed the huge sand dunes.
A perfect finish was provided with ice-cream in Dunfanaghy.
The weather was and is magnificent this summer. I think I’ve never seen such an abundance of flowers especially the bog cotton. Knockalla Mountain was covered in them – so many that I can now believe they made pillows with it – what a beautiful place for your head.
We stayed as usual in our wonderful Ardeen House in Ramelton. Anne and Bert were perfect hosts as usual – The hospitality and breakfasts were much commented upon.
Their stay coincided with the Lennon Festival – after our lovely meals in the Bridge Bar the kids were able to enjoy the amusements and the great buzz along the river.
And to cap it all we finished with a fireworks display on the last evening!!
They left promising to return – a new generation of walkers and talkers!!!
But must not forget the PARENTS!!
