Wednesday 15th – where are the Galway girls…..?

Memories of the old Galway Girl song but a couple of American teachers will have to do – i accosted them over dinner 😜

So hot down to breakfast early this morning hoping for an early getaway arriving at 7:50am to eat and I was informed that breakfast did not start till 8am!

So I decided to go for a bike which took me about 15 minutes and by the time I got back tables bar one were occupied with the tour bus crowd! A few miles up the road, when I bought fuel, re-packed as was having trouble getting me leg over 😆

Headed for Connemara and glad someone suggested Rosroe Pier which was beautiful.

Then I followed the coast out toward Tully and found a spot which I wanted to photograph with the drone and luckily the weather allowed it. Note the little cottage – I remember getting a photo once with smoke coming from the chimney.

Then down to Roundstone – pretty little harbour where I had a hot chocolate to thaw out – honest !!

Finally encountered Galway in the rush hour but filtering is openly encouraged here so it didn’t pose much of a problem.

Oh finally finally – a nice meal in the Pier Point in Kinvarra!

Fat man, Tiny Bike, Roams Ireland !

PS – I almost forgot I went to the place where Alcock and Brown put their plane down after flying the Atlantic for the first time – cool!!
