all tied up

On one of our morning walks in Oranmore, I came across these boats and liked how they looked in the quietness of the morning.  Later, on our way back, they were gone.
Oranmore is in County Galway about a 10 minute drive to Galway City.  We stayed there for a week when we first moved to Ireland.  It is also where my paternal grandmother was born in 1870.  She emigrated to America around 1900.

  1. I like morning walks too.
    And I like boats like this. Perhaps they went out fishing?
    I have been photographing fishing boats in Greece.... They have beautiful letters and symbols on their boats. Happy weekend to you and yours.

  8. Looks like a nice, peaceful setting. I enjoyed my travels through that area several years ago.

  9. The photos are excellent. The boats make a great subject - well-worn, they could probably tell all sorts of tales about the sea and those who sail it! :)

  11. A typical pretty scene along the west coast. My father's family is from Clare. We've been to the family farmhouse in the pastures between Ennis and Kilrush.
