Sligo Photo Diary – Wild Atlantic Way Adventures

Ireland is a stunner of a country. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Even when it is at its wildest with vertical rain cascading down (seemingly trying to get in the window) there is a beauty there. On a recent trip to Sligo, on the west coast, I explored areas I had… Read More Sligo Photo Diary – Wild Atlantic Way Adventures

In setting up an Instagram account to go with the blog it was a… Read More My first Liebster Award nomination
