Checking In from Galway

The River Corrib
I arrived in Galway City last evening around a driving horizontal rain! Luckily, the weather is much better this morning. No swans drifting on a lazy River Corrib today, though.  The river is in full spate, looking very anxious to make its way into Galway Bay.

Galway 'love 'locks'
Ireland has a lovely tradition of tying ribbons or strips of rags to trees, each offering representing a prayer. While I'm not crazy about stuff tied to bridge railings, these Galway love ribbons beat Paris' love locks anytime. And eventually they will weather away leaving space for more lovers to offer prayers of enduring commitment.
