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.

kerr's pink potatoes

delivered right to your door, who knew this service was available.  Kerr's Pink potatoes have a distinctive pink colour with deep eyes. They are quite floury and starchy. They are very good for mashing and boiling but can also be chipped.

    skywatch friday


    morning in Moville.  The awning you see up the road with the blue back is the veg man and his trailer.  The man crossing the street has his veggies for the week.  The tree is where people gather to meet for everything.  It's known as "The Tree". :)

    a colourful walk

    that I took around town and this is what I saw

    two blooming trees on the grounds of St. Columb's Church of Ireland.


    some trees blooming among the green


    these were off to the side of a driveway


    a front garden

    road work

    I wondered why there was a traffic jam and found the answer at the bottom of the hill.
