Ms Deutschland

visited Killybegs yesterday with 530 passengers and 220 crew members.   I’m surprised that the ship had that many people on it.  The cruise ship looked a lot smaller from the ones I normally seen at other places.   It left around 7pm and is now headed to Galway.  The ship was here for ten hours and it was rainy and foggy most of the day.

a peaceful evening

The moving is done, we are finally settled and we are thankful for that.
Here's a calm and peaceful image looking toward Killybegs Harbour.  Hope everyone is enjoying whatever you're doing.

the old coastguard station

in Killybegs.  This is where we are going to move in the next few weeks.  I will be offline for a bit so I will see you all when we get connected again. 
About the station:  it was built in 1875 and has five individual cottages plus the tower.  It's a lovely place and in front is a garden for flowers and other plants and trees.  We are only renting one of the cottages.  Our friend lives in the tower and he and his wife did some intensive work and as a result got the building listed as a historical building.
