The ladies, on the seafront in Salthill this morning before we left for County Clare, the Burren, and the Cliffs of Moher. From the left, we have, Johnna, Robin, Marcie, Tea and Kathy, with Karen in the front. The water, pictured in the background, is Galway Bay, with the Hills of Clare, barely visible in the distance. It was chilly today, but it stayed dry for us, which helped a lot.
The ladies, pictured outside the beautiful Galway Cathedral today.
I love the beautiful stained glass Rose window inside this Cathedral.
The Cathedral is situated right on the banks of the river Corrib. At the top of the picture you can see the Salmon weir, which controls the flow of water from the upper river, and the Corrib lake upstream. This is a great salmon fishing river. You can see the suspended ramps, or gangways, used by the fishermen, on the left hand side of the picture. You have to pay to fish on this section of the river.
Here we have our happy ladies once again, high in the mountains of the Burren, with Galway Bay in the distant background. From the left we have, Robin, Karen, Johnna, Marcie, Tea, and finally Kathleen. The Burren is a most unusual area, which was once upon a time the ocean floor. You can already see just how much their complexions are benefitting from the good Irish air.
The day remained kind to us as we explored the Cliffs.
You can clearly see from this picture at the Cliffs, that the wind was cold as the girls all wrapped themselves up to stay warm. The air was great though, and everybody enjoyed their time here.
This was another great day for all of us and i finally parted company with them in Doonbeg later in the afternoon. Doonbeg is a small village further down the West Coast from the Cliffs, and Kathleen has many friends there from previous visits. Tomorrow i collect them once again as we continue on our Irish adventure.
Make sure you tag along.
