old tractor

as I was walking up quay street this old tractor passed me and I had to quickly grab my camera.  I almost missed him completely.  Only got one shot and this is it.

old abbey graveyard

is located where the Eske River flows into Donegal Bay the Old Abbey stood for more than two centuries despite being ransacked, burned and ravaged. It finally faced abandonment during the early years of the 17th century.
Built by Hugh O’Donnell in 1474, the abbey now only exists as ruins, but the south transept, various areas of the cloisters, and the choir areas are still visible. The nearby graveyard bears evidence of burials occurring for more than a century after the abbey was abandoned.

The view is from the Donegal Bank Trail, a 3.2km out and back trail.

the video is 1:21 long

down in the car park which is not far from the water.  People are not happy with tourists coming in to town for their holiday during covid.  The infected numbers are beginning to increase..  Those campers are from Northen Ireland.

one of the scenes I see on my morning walks.  Some people call these marshmallows because of their resemblance.

weekend reflections

this is an area near the rocks that people fish from but it is underwater now due to all the rain we got at the beginning of the week.  The river is running very high and fast when I passed it on Thursday.

traffic wardens

the white car is parked in a no parking zone that is reserved for buses

and here is the bus that just came in, it has to park further out in the road which causes a traffic jam.

checking the other vehicles in the area.  Drivers are supposed to pay and display their parking meter slip that has the time stamped on it in their window.  If you don't have one or if it's expired you get a fine.
