So after last night’s… adventures… today was thankfully a bit more sedate. However, I did go for a nice walk along the River Corrib and one of the many canals that go through Galway (the Eglington Canal I am pretty sure.) While so doing, I took a bunch of pictures of things, and found myself zooming in a lot. So… a theme? Why not! UP CLOSE… with random things in Galway.
Like these pretty super red flowers! (which were across the canal or I would have zoomed more)
Check out that sweet green dome (of the Galway Cathedral apparently. I could have gone in, but… I didn’t feel like it, so, uh, I didn’t. Cool story, right? Moving on…)
This is the face of equality (no really, the statue is called Equality. I liked her.)
Okay so I am stretching my theme a little here as I did not zoom much on this one, but as far as neat city minutiae go, a random cobblestone boat ramp (literally just going off the sidewalk into the river) met my bar.
It got real real windy when I reached Lough Corrib
Nifty arches in the water near the salmon weir
Old school flow control devices with bonus ferns
Up one of the canal channels where I could not readily follow on foot. It looks inviting
This concludes our random tour of random things Corinne used a zoom lens on or otherwise liked while out walking. Tomorrow, my last day in Galway (tears!), whereon I venture to the Aran Islands (and probably take many, many more pictures!)
P.S. also I went to the Crane Bar for live music, following memories from many years past. It was a good idea.
