I'm a cow and a ram

Not too much to report here in Derry recently...well, besides the fact that my bladder is constantly being dropped kicked by a 2lb fetus.  Can't wait til February when my schedule doesn't revolve around trips to the loo.  Oh, and I decorated Barry's shop for Christmas...yes, a teeny bit early, but since I'm going back to the States for Christmas, I thought it best to go ahead and get them up early so we can enjoy them.  I'll post pics of this winter wonderland courtesy of the pound shop later.  So, in the meantime, here are a few photos taken from when my mom and brother were here visiting last month.

"What are you looking at?"  Those are some fly earrings cow...supa fly.
A waterfall along the causeway coastal route near Benone Beach.

Dunluce Castle

There's a teeny rainbow there in the background.  As there should be!  We get enough rain here I should see a rainbow 24 hours a day.
Slieve League Cliffs in Co. Donegal.
Giant's Causeway
Me and my bro at Victoria's Square in Belfast overlooking the city.

"I'm a ram."
These are some photos taken just a few blocks from where we live in Derry.  These are the famous Bogside Murals by the Bogside Artists.  These murals depict the modern troubles in Derry.


  1. Those pictures look great! I've really been wanting to take some time to go up north! I hear that Londonderry (or just Derry?) is really great to go to! I have some friends living up in Donegal as well and should really go see them as it looks so pretty up there! I hope your mom and brother had a great time visiting and that the weather wasn't too bad!

  2. Oh my gosh....I am soooooooo happy to find you!!! I love Ireland,my husband is from Bangor we were there in June...and I have to say Belfast is my favorite place to visit..and we all love Dunluce Castle,such a tragic story..our son insists on going there at least once everytime we are there..oh I could go on and on..all the best,Chrissy

  3. The photos are gorgeous! Love the scenery - it's so beautiful! Yay for coming back to the States for the Holiday - you get your Taco Bell! lol
