Yesterday was a hot, summery day and there was nothing else for it but to head to the beach…we made for the strand at Mullaghmore…Flo in tow! She is on her lead here due to the fact that she spent half the day running off, trying to attach herself to other people, as only the “littlest Hobo,” knows how!
Mullaghmore Harbour sits on the south side of Donegal Bay…a stunningly beautiful stretch of wild Atlantic coastline!
For those of you familiar with, “Sex in the City,” it may come as no surprise for you to know that Sarah Jessica Parker owns a holiday cottage in Donegal and is familiar with this beautiful bay.
Looking up towards the Hills of Donegal…
Today, Monday, is yet another fabulous day!
A few facts about Donegal Bay…Donegal Bay (Bá Dhún na nGall in Irish) is an inlet (or bay) in the northwest of Ireland.
Three counties – Donegal to the north and west, Leitrim and Sligo to the south – have shorelines on the bay, which is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean.
The town of Donegal and the River Eske lie at the head of the bay.
Donegal Bay is Ireland’s largest bay, and also contains Ulster’s highest (and Europe’s sixth-highest) sea cliffs at Slieve League, which tower 1972 ft (601 m) above sea level.
