Not too long ago we were walking through Ards Friary, one of our favourite places on the planet. This Franciscan community is located on the wildly gorgeous Donegal coastline in northwestern Ireland. We were overwhelmed by the beauty of nature. It is easy to understand why this lovely peninsula was chosen by the Franciscans to locate their friary. Here is a photo of the area surrounding the friary. We wish you could also experience the crisp air of late Spring, the intermingling fragrances of sea salt and flower blossoms, and the majestic sounds of the distant waves as they gracefully curled onto meticuloulsy white strands.
