Still on the Erne river for this week’s Thursday Doors, where we spent our August bank holiday weekend. The weather was mixed but warm and on our last evening we took the boat up river and saw this lovely cottage. What a fabulous setting, with its own private jetty. You can just about make out a white door, which I think is quite unusual on a cottage in Ireland.
The above photo was taken on the way into Belturbet, in county Cavan. This section of the river brings you into the center of the town, where there is free mooring if you wish to stay in the area for a couple of days. As you can see, I managed to photograph a red door, purely by accident, as I was focusing on the boats.
This was our dog, Tino’s first trip on the boat. He wasn’t too impressed until another species of animal caught his eye.
As it was early evening, the light changed every few minutes and it was impossible to resist taking lots of photographs, which made it difficult to decide on the ones to post.
As this is a Thursday Doors post, I included a door, of sorts, in the slide show. It might close with a zip but it’s how we get on and off our boat.
We arrived back before the sun went down, thankfuly, as the lights aren’t working properly yet on the boat. Thanks for joining me on our trip up river. Next week I’ll be introducing you to Kinsale, county Cork, an amazingly colourful old town with quirky features and a huge marina. Don’t forget to surf on over to Norm’s blog and click the blue frog at the bottom of his post, to find some very interesting Thursday Doors.
