As we take off for Donegal today we spotted the US Coast Guard Eagle on our way out of town. I, like any reasonable person, jumped out of the car to snap a photo.
I had forgotten about the Eagle’s landing in Dublin and was super excited to get the chance to capture her in a photo. Seeing the Eagle this am got me to thinking…. Everyone should experience a foreign country to gain a new perspective and also, an appreciation for your home country. The feeling I got when I saw this ship was pure joy. It was SO nice to see Old Glory flying high at the bow of the ship. As much as I am enjoying my time in the Emerald Isle, there really is no place like home. Now, if only I could shove a six year old’s sparkly red slippers on my feet and click my heels to get to Florida.
Ahhhh for the moment the beautiful Donegal is calling and I shall excitedly spend my weekend there. I just hope the Eagle waits to leave until I return to Dublin on Monday.
