Jennifer read my blog about our attempt(s) to go to Slieve League and decided they would drive us there!! What a wonderful gesture and what a sight to see!
Also, riding in a car driven by natives is an experience! And, I am so grateful we had the experience. Willie took a different way home seeing more sights that Tim and I would never have seen. Also, they pointed out the cottage owned by Sarah Jessica Parker. (Actually, I think it is owned by her husband, Matthew Broderick whose family is from the area.)
Wild Rose Cottage - our home for the last 10 days. Staying here has been a dream come true. Knowing that we would not ever live in Ireland this has been the closest to feeling like we do. We did a lot of day trips returning "home" at night. Killybegs, Ardara, Carrick, Ballybofey, Glenties, Derry, Bushmills, Giants Causeway, Coleraine, Donegal Town, and Buncrana. Besides, being able to cook our own meals I was able to hang my laundry outside on the clothes line. Been a whole lot of years since I did that.
I can't say enough good things about the cottage or Willie and Jennifer. If you are considering a trip to this part of Ireland check them out on Trip Advisor...Wild Rose Cottage. Wild Rose Cottage is also on Facebook.
Tomorrow we are off to Cong for a week. (Think John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara in The Quiet Man.) We've had great WiFi for the last 10 days but if you don't see a post on this blog for awhile it may be we may have WiFi challenges in our new location.
