If you've read previous blog posts or know me in real life, you know that Donegal is one of my absolute favourite places to visit. It has incredible scenery and friendly people and it always gives me such a sense of peace to slow down and take in the beauty of nature there. There is something about the mountains and wide stretch of sky that seems to put things in perspective for me.
This was a short visit but so nice, spending time with my friend Sue is always a pleasure. She is that person who knows me better than anyone - we could be drinking wine and dancing our socks off in the kitchen, or just sitting companionably reading together and it always feels just right.
We had pretty crazy weather when I was there, it went from torrential rain and wind to sunny in the blink of an eye and I was afraid we wouldn't get to go swimming but in between the rain showers we decided to brave it and it was so worth it!
We went to St.John's Point beach the second day - this is a stunning sheltered inlet at the end of a peninsula - the drive itself is worth the trip, you are surrounded by sea and soft greens and it is just breathtaking on a good day.
We brought a picnic and a flask of tea and huddled by the rocks as it was pretty cold but it was still delicious :)

It was really gorgeous, creamy and sweet but I just didn't really have room for it so had to give up. I'd recommend taking a wee break before having dessert :)
