Next stop... Galway! Yes, all the way to the west coast. It looked like a nice, short drive (a few hours), but we didn't count on the sucky roads and ridiculous traffic.
Anyhow, here are some photos.
A roadside place we stopped at for lunch on the way to Galway. They had good fish & chips, but I think they're a chain, unlike the local pubs which were one source of good, reasonably priced food at other points during our trip.

Processing scrap in Galway (nothing but the best sights on this blog!)
An establishment down by the docks
This swan was convalescing with the help of some local people who came by the feed it while we were there.
The swan was mellow with me, but it stood and spread its wings to drive off another person who came by later. I guess it liked me. :)
I love the colors of the houses.
More multi-colored facades in Galway
Love this little boat
Marc waiting for me in the car as I take some photos
BTW, in that last photo, Marc is in the passenger's seat. Remember, they have that bass ackwards car thing there, driving on the wrong side, etc. :)
