monday mural - gillen's supermarket

A few months ago Gillen's Supermarket commissioned a new mural for their side wall where the customers park.  The artist is a very multi-talented local man, Brendan Farren, and the mural shows local scenes, Lough Foyle, the lighthouse and Cooley Cross.  It a long one and tough getting it in one image due to cars being there off and on all day and night.  The last photo is of the end.  Previously I showed its predecessor back in February,

mother nature's art

these are some of the rocks I see when I looking for sea glass that washes up on shore.  I find them very amazing and I enjoy looking at them.  The sea glass we used for crafty ideas.  I find lots of clear glass and lately I've  been finding green, brown, aqua, and blue.  Red is very hard to find according to a source on sea glass that I read.  Someday though...


I found this little tree like branch growing out of the rock.  Very cool and I love the shadow it creates.


another shot  of it from a different angle


abstract looking rocks, very smooth from the water flowing over them







 some of the glass that I found.  It's like winning a prize :)

River Bredagh Bridge

is a traditional stone bridge, argued by many to be one of Ireland’s oldest bridges. The bridge itself is thought to date from the 6th Century and according to legend was built by St Patrick who stopped here on his way to a nearby ancient site at Cooley.
