DAILY TRAVEL PHOTO #3

I was selected for this challenge by my friends Tony & Margie from BACK ROADS AND OTHER STORIES to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to select someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. I normally do not participate in challenges, but, hey, this is a crazy year, so I will participate in this one and will do my best to make it to the end of the ten days. For now, I select my friends L & K  from Wandering Canadians for this challenge. Please link to me if you decide to participate. If you are not interested or do not have time to participate, no worries.  My photos will literally be all over the map.

Yesterday’s photo was taken from the walls of Daire (Gaelic for Derry) in Northern Ireland, named Londonderry by the English. It shows the Bogside where the Catholics lived under the shadow of the walls. We visited in 2017 and enjoyed our visit to this city very much.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

      1. We have a cousin there, so have been there about 4 times. Always something new to see. Trim Castle is the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland. There are also the ruins of the Priory of John the Baptist and Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul and St. Mary’s Abbey as well as an archeological dig on the Blackfriary. Still trying to see the Hill of Tara in the sunshine. Hope you can visit. Allan

    1. Marie is from near Dublin, so she had an advantage for sure. Aiva also knew Ireland but had not been to Trim. As she says, there are 30,000 castles in Ireland, so lots to guess from. Stay well Bernie. Allan

  1. Many thanks for the nomination Allan. I’m still debating whether to participate in the challenge. It’s not something that I usually do and I have such a backlog of posts to still write. But, then again, who doesn’t love to reminisce through old photos? Seems like a fitting way to wrap up the year. P.S. Ireland is totally on the top of my travel bucket list.

    1. No problem. I feel your indecision. I wiffle-waffled 20 times and then thought, what the heck, time to get out of this 2020 rut. Agree with the reminiscing part. So many good trips and memories. Oh, you have to go to Ireland. We have been there many times and can’t wait to get back to see the sights but mostly the people. Having relatives there is a good reason. Stay well and thanks for reading. Allan
