We made these memories for ourselves

When we woke up to a bright, sunny day and decided not to go to church, but instead to venture west and go to the beach.

We stopped at a town called Buncrana, located in the Republic of Ireland and about an hour's drive from home.

Buncrana is located on the northern bank of the River Crana as it enters Lough Swilly, which in itself provides a most scenic drive.

We went to visit the three-story O'Doherty's Keep, which is the only surviving part of an original 14th-century Norman castle. 

Then we went for a long, long walk on fine, white sea sand. I have not seen sea sand in a forever long time, and as the gentle breeze washed over me, my soul felt as if it had wings.

After a very enjoyable day, we went back home, but it is a day I will remember fondly for a long, long time.
