the bank walk

in Donegal Town.  This 2.5 km walk  follows the west bank of the River Eske as it empties into Donegal Bay.  It's nice, shady and cool.  A great place to visit on a hot and humid day.  I had an hour to kill before heading back to Killybegs so I enjoyed a walk on the trail.


one of the fairies houses that children had placed in the nooks of trees, there are quite a few of them at the beginning.  I liked this one with the chair.

a post box that some people leave a note on their way out.  I wonder who collects the notes, maybe a fairy. :)


a list of flora and fauna that you can see on the trail


Saw the leaf on the way out, an appropriate ending for the day.

  17. Hi Bill.

    Beautiful area Bill.
    Funny post that you see on the trees.
    Besides the Feeen there can also be gnomes or trolls ;-)).
    Is of course super fun for children.

    You have taken beautiful pictures.
