Sunday 9/15 - Sligo to Letterkenny

We are a little suspicious of the housekeeping in this B&B. She had both the rooms made in record time and we didn't see any soiled linen piled on the floor as is the norm, wonder if she just tidies the sheets and not replace them.

We decided to brush that thought out of our heads, she was a pleasant enough person and the breakfast was good, so why worry about the "what ifs".

Left shortly after breakfast towards Donegal, we finally get to find our what people get all misty eyed and say "ah Donegal".

Donegal is certainly beautiful county specially along the coastal drive. At every turn there was beautiful scenery all around us.

The highlight was Slieve League, which are the highest cliffs in Ireland much less famous than the Cliffs of Moher but three times higher.

The weather was blustery with gale force winds and the Atlantic Ocean crashing on the rocks was something to be awed by.

Only Sudip and Trish braved the weather to go out of the car to take pictures, they are the true photographers or Nat Geo photographers as Dan called them.

The scenery was gorgeous all around us but very hard to enjoy due to the pelting rain and the gale force winds.

We left the area and decided to cut short our coastal route due to the weather and headed for Letterkenny where we were going to spend the night at Eugene & Ann's B&B.

We found the place easily enough and were greeted by a smiling Eugene. The rooms were large and well appointed, complete with WiFi and Eugene extremely helpful. He recommend the restaurant Yellow Pepper in town which was a short drive and an excellent choice.

We were all happy with our site seeing even though it had to be cut short due to the weather.

Made our plans for the next day and retired for the night.
