- I had no intention of spending my time in Ireland taking photos. I meant to be "in the moment" and aware of what was going on, not seeing the trip through a camera lens.
- That plan went out the window early on, except that I saw it through the lens of my phone's camera.
Our bus driver/guide encouraged us to photograph signs because it would help us later on to know what we were looking at pictures of. Smart man. Without some of these, I might have no idea. I think you can click on each to enlarge it if you're interested.
This sign about boat tours is nice because there's a bit of scenery behind it. And behind me when I was taking the photo is Ross Castle.
Another photo at Scarriff Inn. I told you they had a great view--and here's proof, right on the sign.
This is one of the places where I should have kept in mind that vehicles are driving on the left side of the road. Fortunately they were looking out for me more than I was looking out for them. Our bus was parked on the far side of the road from the inn, and thanks to those observant drivers, I didn't miss the rest of the tour because of being run down after a delicious lunch.
Their restrooms had cloth towel rolls. Do you remember those? Lots of places we visited in Ireland had the cloth towels as an option. Nice little blast from the past.
the blog about tour guides? Golden Light...
See the big orange W on the Galway Cathedral sign? Failte - Welcome. We felt so very welcome everywhere. Churches and cathedrals blog is coming up. I promise!
If I were doing it again, I might go back to my outdated habit of buying a postcard at each site. The picture is on the front, the explanation on the back. But then I'd have missed some of these, which are amusing to me, at least.
I hope you're enjoying my oddball reliving of the Ireland trip. I sure am!
