Driving up here was not as long as I would have imagined- well I know Ireland isn't that big to begin with but still! You could get from the most southerly part of Ireland to the most northerly part in or around 8 hours which seems mad! Especially when it took us two weeks to drive from Melbourne to Darwin all those years ago! How or take a few stop offs though, but it shows the incredible size difference overall!
Stopping off in Strandhill, in Sligo, a county home to half of westlife, we took in the rugged west coast scenery and watched the surfers in awe as they battled the huge waves before us! Why had I never learned to surf? Australia/California... I had plenty of chances! But that doesn't mean I can't aim to try in the future! And I will!
We stopped off at W.B.Yeates grave in Rosses Point, Sligo before carrying on to our next destination Co. Donegal!
On pur way back home tomorrow, we plan to drive back though Sligo, stop off in Strandhill once again and have dinner in Yeates Tavern- named after W.B.Yeates! Exciting stuff!
For now I will carry on with my Donegal adventure and no doubt I will have a follow up to my experience on my return!
