The swans at the Round “O” are more active now that spring is in the air.
This new weedcutter was launched at the Round “O” slipway this morning. After a few turns around the river, pretending to cut non-existent weed, he is coming out of the water again. Presumably everything is in working order!
We measured Shannon for a lifejacket, but she had outgrown it by the time it arrived! This replacement jacket is two sizes bigger, and should fit her for a while.
We are staying with Maurice and Janet for Easter. This waterfall on the Roogagh River is just above the village of Garrison.
A typical Irish cottage in County Leitrim.
The cliffs above Glencar are as spectacular as ever.
Across on the other side of Glencar, is the shamrock of deciduous trees, which were planted among the conifers.
At Rosses Point, this bronze sculpture of a girl, called Waiting on Shore, is reaching to those out at sea.
This plaque can be seen on the wall below the statue.
The statue of a boy on the rock in the bay is very lifelike. He is made of metal and has a light alongside him to warn ships of danger. The wrecks of some ships from the Spanish Armada were found near here.
Lord Mountbatten’s House stands high above us as we head for Mullaghmore.
The gates of the house still bear the insignia, M of B, for Mountbatten of Burma. It is quite poignant to see this.
The Atlantic rollers breaking over the rocks at Mullaghmore Head were really spectacular.
The wind was bitterly cold as we walked out along the breakwater outside Mullaghmore Harbour.
