On the Road Again

We decided to head to Buncrana today, so we hopped on the noon bus and off we went. We had not been there in about 6 months, but wanted to pick up some stuff we cannot get here.

It's always a nice view out of the bus window.

I enjoyed the flowers--especially the purple ones!

We had time to stop at the library and look around.

 It's part of the Donegal system, so we can check things out there and return here.Bill found several that he was interested in, but he did not want to carry a stack of books home. He already had a book from a charity shop in his backpack. So he wrote down titles and authors so he can request them and have them sent here.  I could not resist checking out a book.
I am looking forward to learning more about Countess Markievicz, who was an important woman in Irish history. On the back of the book I read, 'Countess Constance Markievicz--one of the most remarkable women in Irish history--was a revolutionary, a socialist, and a feminist, as well as an artist and writer...a woman with a huge heart, battled all her adult life to establish an Irish republic based on co-operation and equality for all.'

How could I resist that? Truth be told, they had me at 'a most outrageous rebel.' 😁
