blue sky and a bird

looking down at the rooftops of Moville from the recycle area.  That's the UK across Lough Foyle.  The blue sky is from Wed, now we are back to cloudy and rain. :(

a flower and a bee

yesterday I went to the community garden area to put some stuff in the compost bin.  When I got there I was surprised to see a flower sticking out of a bin with a bee busy working away.  It was rather nice out but the cooler temps and rain are supposed to return for the weekend.

fire starter

the kid had some small branches and was trying to get a fire going.  I guess dad was just supervising if that was his dad.  I don't know if a fire is allowed but I never seen a sign saying no fires permitted.  It's the first one I saw here near the shore walk.

the parade

commenced and there was no rain just cold temps and wind.  Behind the people were trucks with bunting, fire engines, ambulances and a few tractors, all with ads for their services.   The people walking looked cold but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Another fun small community event, well done by everyone.

window displays for St. Patrick's Day

Winter might be returning this weekend and could rain, sleet or snow on our parade plus it’s going to be cold.  There will be vendors and music down in Market Square but like last year they didn’t do very well because it rained pretty steadily all day.  The pubs will do fine, they always do. :)
