signs signs

vintage tea days are here and they're getting ready for the cruise ships coming in this month.  We had the MS Oriana today, the MS Queen Elizabeth comes in on Friday.

MS Oriana will visit Killybegs on Tuesday 17th July 2018 with 1800 passengers and 760 crew. This cruise ship will arrive at 09.00 and depart at 17.00. MS Oriana is one of the smallest cruise ships in the P&O Cruises fleet. Oriana elegantly combines classic design features such as teak decks and a tiered stern with delightful Art Deco touches. Exclusively for adults, she exudes refinement and luxury. Oriana’s signature features are a stunning atrium with a Tiffany glass ceiling and her panoramic Crow’s Nest bar.

donegal bay waterbus

this is a very popular tour for tourists who visit the area.  It lasts 75 minutes and you learn some of the history of the area, the Bluestack Mountains and Donegal Bays' many islands plus a visit to view the seal colony on Seal Island.   We haven't gone on the tour yet but will save that for another day.

music at the diamond

last Thursday we went to Donegal Town to pick up some library books.  Afterward, we came back to the Diamond to eat our lunch and there was some music playing.  It had a Native American sound to it and was a pleasure to hear while we ate our lunch.   What a wonderful surprise that turned out to be.

what I saw

This is the first electric car that I noticed being charged and this is the only charger in town according to the eCars charge point map.  The green lights are all lit up so I wonder if that means it is charging or if it's done.

further down on the road were these two vans.  Was it a relay delivery team.  

or two guys shooting the breeze

hanging some new lights on one of the buildings. 

bridge street is always crowded with cars, not enough room to maneuver.

loads of hay heading out of town.

and the final view as I near home.
