Tomorrow i will head into Londonderry to do some sightseeing. Mt time in Ireland is running out. Next stop is Belfast for 3 nights then its onto Scotland.
The morning starts out with a nice breakfast cooked by Anne. We have a great conversation over breakfast, but i must get out to visit Derry. Its a 40 minute drive. Lucky in way its sunday as all the street parking is free. I take a long walks around the Walled ...

It boasts a grand Victorian style pleasure garden and walled garden which we tour, despite the misty weather. How Elizabeth longs to grow sweet peas taller than herself, and lush, vibrant dahlias! The mist is like a carpet in the gardens. Tree branches hang ...
