terrible weather

Yesterday it rained and poured all day with thunderstorms.  There was flooding all around here, some roads and some bridges were totally washed away.  We were lucky and only lost our internet connection last night.  A friend who lives in Muff (about 15 minutes from Moville) couldn't get home.  She, her husband and baby were stranded with some other people at a gas station.   We just found out that their house is flooded and they won't be able to go back.  We are listening to the radio and lots of people were affected and can't go home.  Hopefully things will be worked out for each and everyone of those affected.

two sides

one side of the road has a few cows and it is feeding time.  They thought I had some food and don't look happy when they didn't see any. 


while the other side has sheep and they were enjoying their meal.

an old white house

seen the other day on my walk down by the water and took the photo through a fence.  I don't know what kind of bush that is but it caught my attention and it's pretty.

pins and needles

the sign by the chair says:  take the weight off, rest your weary bones.  I imagine the chair is used for advertising their services.
