house by the lake

on our walk last week to Dungloe Lake, we saw this house in the distance and decided that would be our destination.  It took about 45 minutes to get there.  The hills around there are very rocky so the rocks that we saw around the house looked like they were there naturally and maybe bleached.  I could be wrong but it was interesting to see regardless.  We didn't see any people so we don't know if the house was finished or inhabited.

you can see the house in the distance, to the right and rear of the sign

saturday critters

saw all these critters on a walk yesterday morning.  It was nice and quiet, we saw only four people which we passed and said hi.  We did see a few people talking and they were doing the social distance thing. 

this sheep had its own ball but he didn't want to play :)


this old lion didn't want to play ball either :)


so you're leaving, huh?  it's about time :)

signs

a notice in a chemist store informing patrons of the new protocol.  They had taped numbers on the floor three meters between each one.  As one person proceeded, the next one would move up.  A woman would assist you by taking your presciption and your phone number.  They would text you when it was ready.
Be smart, pay attention and hopefully stay healthy!


a notice on a school bus giving advice for schools

unoccupied

on a walk a few weeks ago, I came across these unoccupied houses.  My guess it that the work was never finished on them.  It's a shame because there are lots of families who are in need of a place to call home.

skywatch

came across lady liberty when were heading to Dungloe from Killybegs at the end of Jan.  It was very strange, it just popped in to view when we came around a curve in the road.  At night the bulb on the torch lights up.  It overlooks Gweebarra Bay towards the sand dunes of Dooey Beach.
I would love to know the story behind this. :)

bank of ireland

built in 1905 as two fine townhouse residences:  Dungloe's first semi detached houses.  A newspaper advert from 1909:  "Spacious semi detached villa to be let or sold, containing two reception rooms and six bedrooms, situated in midst of good shooting and fishing district".  In October 1920, the National Bank Ltd. (from 1969, Bank of Ireland) opened a branch here.
