so i head over towards donegal bay and end up skirting up around cliffoney and mullaghmore cos you never know what fillies be out and about these parts
.
the weather was keeping dry and the churches were emptying out and same ones were filling the pubs for the pint before lunch..........great tradition this........wife goes home to put on the dinner..........husband does his weekly duty and warms the big stool for as long as it takes for herself to get her act together and produce something grand altogether.........................the old ways are still the best ways...........!!!
.
.
same ould faces there every sunday and usual nods and 'ows it goin' and the odd wink - a proper civilised way of carrying on for sure
.
.
i leave the cráic and move on round the coast.............clean air in the lungs and clean guinness in the belly and not so clean thoughts in the head - 2 out of 3 aint bad !
.
.
parked up here to take in the view............sometimes you can see whales or seals........once or twice i've seen elephants but we know why that happened !
.

.
.
other angle............note boat in background.........he was tipping along nicely !
.
.

.
.
maybe a bit of fishing to be done............first get to the best spot..........or maybe they were headed for inishmurray.........ancient ruins on an abandoned island..............ruins of fort from before pyramids time.............you can google it !!
.
.

.
in the distance you can see the island
.
.

.
.
and now for a collage pic of bike.........boat......and island...........!!
.
.

.
.
and before you ask this is a typical summers day..............cloudy cloudy cloudy............warm cold warm............wet dry damp wet dampish.......just variations on this sequence and then add in bright and dark and this about covers the whole fu*kin range here in mouldy ireland............!!!
.
.
the sea is usually wet too and add to this salt and it's about covered, calm and stormy can be thrown in later
.
.

.
.
this be a rare glimpse of sun...........and it is mighty when it appears............we all strip off in the fervent hope of changing from a purple/blue colour to a pink/red colour............as soon as it appears paddy and mrs paddy whip it all off...........lay down cover ourselves in baby oil face the sky close eyes and pray the bastard sun stays out long enough to burn the arses offa us.............that is summer..................just wonderful...............everyone next day has big thick red necks.............lumps and itches............all kinds of creams and lotions..........and brutal heads from dehydration in the sun and feeds of pints the night before thinking you had this mighty tan like a spaniard............and the f**kin back roasting offa you..........praying to jaysus no bastard slaps you on the back.........!!!
.
.
.

.
.
.
castle and sea..............gloomy like and wild and windy and damp and mouldy and mad and lonely ould hole...............otherwise a fine place for sure !
.
.

.
.
and a bit closer...........i have an even closer up one of your one stripping off in the upstairs window..........hmmmmmmmmmmm....!!! maybe another time !
.
.

.
.
and this is another collage of bike....castle and the fine thing butt naked in the window...........if you can't see her you're watching too much porn........!!!
.
.

.
.
i've gotta go now and scratch this f**kin itch i have but i leave you with this......

........like a vision from heaven..............i heard the angels
.
.
and this feeling came down on to the earth and moved me.............as the choir sang and faded away and the flashing light dimmed
this appeared on the road (to damascus -small village in the next valley !!)............right in front of me.
.
and she gently looed and mooed ................ be still your beating hearts ............ be still ..............
.
.

.
.
.
.....to be continued
