So, Friday afternoon and off we go. 3 vans with no particular plan or even an idea where to stop. Meet up at local Indian for a carry out and decide where we spend the night as we tuck in to our Vindaloos ! 🥵
Only about half an hour drive and spend the night here.
Beautiful area once again, Portsalon, Co.Donegal with Ballymastoker beach as a backdrop.

Lovely place.
Drove over Knockalla yesterday evening ... spectacular drive and scenery...
Stopped overnight in Rathmullen. Lots of motorhomes here overnight and now at 11am the day visitors are arriving and we will pack up and move on and free up the Parking.
Lovely area if anyone is up this way..... worth a couple of nights.

Nice one John, funny how in our haste to explore we can miss what is on our doorstep. Another reason for a visit to my favourite county.

Too right Jim..... now if we could put a roof on Donegal ! ........... ☔

Some fantastic spots waiting to be discovered, we’ve only began seeing Donegal properly since we got the motorhome.

Never forget 1978, Ari Vatenan in the RS1800 (nicknamed Black Beauty) in Donegal...... a masterclass in driving.
I owned an RS1800 in the early 80’s.... big regret ever selling it.

Had the pleasure of meeting Ari in Gowran festival of speed a few years back, a total gentleman, and can still mix it with the best of them ......long live the BDA 💪🏻💪🏻
