Busy week as one of the things I did was to organise a pet passport for our dog, Rupert, so we can take off abroad when we choose. I also sourced a car harness for him and a non spill drink bowl. This time we were heading to Donegal, Inishowen Peninsula and, yes, for more golf. We had a detour on the way to collect a new wheel in Letterkenny. We stayed at Pollan Bay, another wild camping spot from MotorhomeCraic and it is just fabulous despite the idiots doing donuts for around 20 mins in the car park. There is a fabulous 4 mile marked walk on the beach which I would highly recommend doing.
The following day we were booked to play Glashedy Links at http://www.ballyliffingolfclub.com/ but the general manager suggested as we had driven up that we play The Old Course too. As we were booked to play http://www.northwestgolfclub.com/ the following morning our plan was to stay at a wild camping spot in Buncrana that night. We were, however, advised that this isn’t the safest spot unless we got a place at the tourist office and there was nothing more to it than for the general manager to go to the trouble to find us a hook up in the car park and stay at Ballyliffin. There was music and craic that night and too much wine.
Our adventure continued with golf on the Saturday and another incident – as we were leaving my beloved, with the entire mens committee watching, reversed into a flag pole and broke the back light! Will we ever have an incident free journey? Thankfully no damage to the flag pole but brake light was replaced and now the hunt is on for a new tail light box.
We are thoroughly enjoying our new adventure albeit we haven’t quite relaxed into it yet. I would like to stay with and meet other MH owners as I’ve no doubt that we are missing many tricks and have so much to learn. Rupert’s harness and bowl have now arrived so for our next road trip there will be no golf clubs but walking boots and our dog.
I would like to thank everyone I’ve chatted to online for all their help and do hope to meet up with some of you at some stage in the future
