Last night, Bill looked out the window and saw that there was a beautiful sunset over the water, so we went out and around the corner for a short walk along the shore path. The sound of the river rushing over the rocks to meet the sea added to the peace, beauty, and joy of the moment.
This morning, we decided to do a looped walk to a nearby lake and back. We went to the lake via one road, walked along the lake for a while, then turned around and walked back to the main road into town and came back that way. When we first came to Dungloe, I watched out of the bus window and was thrilled to see that the footpaths (sidewalks) run all the way from town to the lake on both roads. The road by the lake also has a footpath for a time, but even when it runs out, there is not a lot of traffic on that road, so it's safe to walk there. As we were walking in town, we saw a few people talking to one another, but not as many as we usually see. Those that were having conversations were standing apart--not 2 metres, but farther than they usually do.
Anyway, I snapped a few pictures of things that caught my eye as we were walking, so if you feel like coming along on our walk, scroll on! 😃
|walking up chapel road|
|a front garden--now that's privacy!|
|at the lake|
|the pier at the lake--we walked along the road until just beyond the house you see in the distance|
|islands in the lake|
|daffodils--these grow in profusion alongside many roads and sometimes the verge is just a mass of yellow|
|shadows on the hills|
|back on the road into town--someone's front garden (yard)|
|play on words|
And yes, when we came home, we washed our hands well!
I hope you're finding things to smile about, even in this crazy time.
