August in Sligo


We had no electricity today. It was fun and games trying to make toast over the gas hob. It was a dark old day so we decided in the end to go into town.

I had a voucher for The Tobergal Cafe that I won in a photo competition for the SO Sligo food festival. So we all went and had lunch, it was lovely. Andy had lobster risotto, Lucy had pancakes, Jono had soup and a cheese platter and I had a roasted vegetable and sheep cheese tartlet. I’ll put some photo’s below for you to drool over.

The weather got worse after lunch and we ended up getting drenched. Luckily by the time we got home the electric was back on.

I heard from Look West today. I didn’t win the Capture a Sligo Summer moment competition but I get to pick up the prints of my photos so that’s good 🙂

  1. Aw bless ya, looks like you claimed the weather we were expecting Val. What a gem you are.
    Sounds like you made an enjoyable treat out of a dodgy old day though, so double good on you, and good luck for the next photo contest!! 😀 xx
