Weather report: A Bright Day with Sunny Spells

The next day we walked to downtown Galway and continued to shop and compare pubs.  Interesting fact, the pubs do not open until noon!  Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

The day was indeed sunny with lots and lots of tourists to share the narrow streets.  The charming quality was highlighted by the abundance of street entertainers and musicians.   

I caved and  gave Joe a reprieve...we headed back to Dublin to turn in the car, cut our tour short and just hang out in the old part of Dublin around Trinity College known as Temple Bar.  

We were warned by my Aunt Kitty to steer clear of this area.  It is a known magnetic for derelict enthusiasts (reportedly from England)  who end up puking in the streets at all hours.

..........hmmmmmmm

Puking?  Well, it's all a part of seeing the local color, I guess...  Lisa  :-]

Reminds me of the chap from "Fiddler on the Roof", but with a Celtic flair!. What's this about Galway pubs not opening until noon??? This has dispelled my conception of the hard-drinking Irish!!....Jon
