More Scenes of Ireland

Sometimes my travel photos lend themselves to a narrative. Sometimes not.

The landscapes here are from a sunny and briskly windy day spent along the north end of the Wild Atlantic Way, which we saw in part on our trip to Ireland four years ago (here and here).

The Wild Atlantic Way, 1600 miles (2600 km) in length, is one of the longest defined coastal routes in the world. It winds its way all along the Irish west coast from the Inishowen Peninsula in the north down to the picturesque town of Kinsale, County Cork, in the south.

The other shots are from a misting morning in Letterkenny, our last on this trip.

Did the same engineers build both bridge and fence? Asking for a friend.

No sunbathers, several parkas . . .

  1. How refreshing to see the view from someone else’s backyard, even when it includes a waterlogged rowboat! Those perspectives of the sea set something right within my soul. Have I ever seen road signs so graphic? Someone should have set one next to me as I launched on life!

    The sidebar quotes are heart-rending and inspiring. Carl Sandburg particularly appeals to me on this taste-of-summer day.

      Laurna – I love the road signs too – some graphic designer earned their pay that day! So glad you’re tasting summer where you are. We’ve slid back into autumnal breezes.

  2. Tom Watson says:

    Having seen these, I wish I had taken a trip and met up with you there!

  3. Thanks for these photos. Some of them remind me of my trip, and some are entirely new views.

      Carla – Thank you! Ireland seems to have a lot of pretty and pretty dramatic scenery.
