Today, we had to purchase a new GPS to cover all of Ireland. Once properly equipped we departed our lodgings at Londonderry and had a quick visit to the city including the medieval wall and the famous ‘Free Derry’ slogan dating from time of the Troubles.

Next we moved down to the small town of Letterkenny to cash travellers cheques then to Donegal, Bundoran and Sligo. En route we encountered some stunning seaside scenery,saw a raptor or two, picked some wild mushrooms (for tomorrow’s breakfast) and took lots of pics. We took a diversion to see Glencar Lake and Waterfall which proved well worthwhile with good photo opps. At Sligo we visted the 13th century Abbey which although a ruin retains most of its original features (see image with this post).

After departing Sligo we drove to our lodgings at Westport, a charming and very busy small town. Our lodgings are out of town set on a high elevation with superb views of the Atlantic coast. En route we encountered an Irish traffic jam in form of a herd cows being driven along a country lane thus providing amother photo opp.

Another great day. Watch this space for tomorrow’s adventure!
