ABC Wednesday, Round 4 - D.


This week is an easy one for me.
Obviously,
D
is for
DUNGLOE

The original Irish name means The Grey Steppingstones.

Just to the left of the top picture can be found the Dungloe Day Centre.

The next sign I want to show you is that of Doherty's Travel. Doherty's runs buses throughout the area, and also hires coaches for trips as far afield as continental Europe.
And here are their town garages, and their booking office.

When your trip is over, Doherty's also have a restaurant on Main Street - nothing fancy, but the meals are filling and you can take them with you if you're short of time.
It's a colourful building!

ABC Wednesday is hosted by Mrs Nesbitt.
Come and join the fun, and find other participants on the ABC page.

Travaling around your town is so interesting. I wish I could do it in person. That is a very colorful place to eat. I hope there food is as bright as there building.
I love your dragons.

How often does the translation in English loose the magic. That brightly coloured restaurant is very inviting.

Thanks for the tour of Dungloe. How nice that you know what the original name means. Grey stepping stones...hmmm.

Great choice. I never heard of the town but I guess that's what blogging is all about. I like learning about so man different things.

Too far from California for me to take advantage of it, I'm afraid... I'm happy to see how your dragons are progressing.

Interesting photo trip to Dungloe. That red building is bright enough to cheer up a day.

I would have thought 'D' for dragons, but maybe you have done that before...But Dungloe is a good choice too...

The nosey parker in me does enjoy looking around places!

Delectable.

Thanks for the great tour in Dungloe. Are you Irish yourself or, as I prefer to say, a" Celt". I know that the Welsh have a dragon in their flag and they are Celts too. I like those pink coloured buildings in the UK and Ireland.

Rose said...

The perfect D! Next to dragons, of course:) I enjoy taking this weekly tour of your town; it would be a wonderful place to visit.

I will be on the look-out for Doherty's coaches now. When they visit Holland and I'll see them, they will be wondering who the waving mad woman is ;-)
You can't miss their restaurant. Great color.

D is most certainly for my first born son David, a joy to behold.

John said...

Here you have collected a nice photo series of the letter D.

Jay said...

Looks like a very neat and pretty place. The restaurant makes me hungry ...

Damama T said...

Hi, love! My favorite D woud is, DRAGONSTAR! But yours are nice, as well. ;o)

Not sure I'm liking the new layout... change always takes me a while to become accustomed to, though, so I'll just have to get over it, won't I. ;o) HUGS!!

Sorry you couldn't hear the explanation about the didgeridoo and the sound of it. The text is about like this: In the background you hear the mysterious sound of the didgeridoo. This is my didgeridoo. It's made by Roy McIvor, an artist from Hopevale, a member of the Guugu yimidhirr tribe. He is also an uncle of my daughter's ex-husband.He told me how he makes his didgeridoos. He walks through the bush, taps on the trunks of very thin trees. As soon as he hears a hollow sound, he knows that this tree is perfect for the didgeridoo. He cuts the tree, blows out the termites, which are needed to make the tree hollow. Then he starts working on it. He paints animals on it On my didge there are a goanna and a croc. The first time I heard the didgeridoo, I got goose pimples. I got lessons but couldn't manage to play it. It's very difficult for you have to blow and breath at the same time, which is called circular breathing. May be one of you can play it
