Celtic Cross at Clonca, Clonca, cottages, Donegal, dreams, Inishowen 100, Ireland, Malin Head, photography, thoughts
Since I’ve been back from Donegal I have been busy getting things together for my trip to Germany next week. My day-to-day life has been a little hectic and I have had no chance to think, imagine or dream.
But on Tuesday I was still up in Donegal and my friend and I decided to take a road trip up to Malin Head on the Inishowen peninsula, the most northerly point of Ireland.
With the weather not being able to make up it’s mind we packed rain gear, hiking boots and a pick-nick. We opted to take the scenic route and drove the ‘Inishowen 100’, a curvy windy road through hill, mountains, past sheep , tumbling valleys and lots and lots of picturesque cottages.
The closer we got to the tip of Ireland the more we felt the need to buy our very own cottage, not that either of us have the cash to do so, but the scenery invites to dream.
Maybe these photos will inspire you a little too:
Love the fixer-upper – you should buy it and don’t forget to water the roof!
yes or just use it as a cold water shower …
I’m thinking Ireland has to be in my future.
yes it is beautiful and well worth a visit
Some breath-taking photos.. I love to be near water..especially oceans (which of course are not near us) The cottage is quite a fixer upper… Somebody’s home though once upon a time…. Diane
it needs a lot of work and love … and time . I live very close to the sea (the North Sea) and have lived on an Island … water is important for me too
Amazing landscapes and well captured. Have a good trip to Germany 🙂
