It was our first full day in Galway and we were actually leaving for a full day "day trip" to the Aran Islands.
It was very early but we managed a few extra minutes to give our seagull friend a little bread.
We left in a hurry to walk to the meeting place to catch our tour bus.
It wasn't far.
We were to meet in front of the Kinlay Hostel by 7:00 a.m.
We were not the only tour meeting there.
It got more and more crowded.
Eventually, we were all sorted out and on our way!
We were traveling from Galway to Doolin to catch our ferry.
It was a beautiful coach ride which took about an hour, maybe a little longer.
This was our ferry that was to shuttle us across the Wild Atlantic Way to the smallest of the three Aran Islands.
Thankfully, Inisheer is also the closest.
It was nearly an hour's ride!
On this boat!
What a ROCK and ROLL ride it was!
We stood outside in the cold wind and some rain.
We hung on to the railing for our dear lives!
It was the same on the way back...
We never dreamed it was a boat like this!
We saw a beautiful catamaran just gliding along through the swells.
But not us!
