As promised, here’s another post from my adventures in Galway City. I think I took approximately 300 photos, so there is a lot to share with you! I hope you enjoy them!
These seagulls were absolutely adorable. They were all perched in a row, not at all afraid of me. I was, of course, greeting them and waving like a maniac. I’m sure strangers were puzzled by my friendliness, but I couldn’t care less. I am a crazy animal lover, and nothing will stop me.
I adore snapping photographs of animals, especially on a blissfully sunny day. Seagulls were everywhere. And there were just as many swans. It was chaotic, yet beautiful to watch. I was in my element, surprisingly surviving the heat, with my camera hanging from my neck, and my sunglasses in place. The gentle breeze was luxurious. Yes, my hair was all over the place, hindering my view of the water, but I still managed to get some nice photographs, if I do say so myself. And yet, I still didn’t manage to get a tan. After hours in the sun, my pale Irish skin remained, well, pale. It refused to change in colour, story of my life.
During my walk, it was quite humorous to observe everyone lying flat on the available grass; it was like being surrounded by a sea of dead bodies. Every so often, my sister and I would chuckle and say ‘Another dead body.’ It was peculiar. It’s the Irish thing to do, ‘Whenever the sun is out, I’m out’. And the result will include a severely sun burned group of people, whom have to attend work/college the next day, and may or may not have a slight hangover. Hence, why I do not take part in sprawling across the ground, and chugging down luke warm beer in the blazing heat. Instead, I use my legs and stroll around, enjoying the view, completely avoiding alcoholic beverages.
So, I intend to venture out much more, preferably in the city, where there is so much left to explore. I cannot wait, stay tuned for more!
