Someday, I'd love to "watch the sun go down on Galway Bay." I may be Irish by osmosis -- my husband's ancestors came from this beautiful country -- but everything about it is enticing. This is a wonderful photo, Patricia -- great composition, detail and colors. #7701741

Thanks everyone I was not expecting such a response to this image!!! The west of Ireland is very beautiful and different to the rest of the country. I think that is why people like Ireland so much, you get such variety of scenery in a small Island. All we need are good roads and good weather!!!!
LOL Max. A Guinness on tap for you!!! #7701964
