Fishing boats on galway bay

The old fishing village, Teach mor, County Galway

The Area around Teach mor, Galway bay in County Galway is one of the most beautiful in Europe in my own opinion.

I took this shot while we walked our way along the coast road, you can see an old abandoned fishing village on the far shoreline. We had the place to ourselves all afternoon and Molly got to swim with the seals as they came close in just to work out who she was.

I think they got a bit of a shock when she went in with them…

    Lovely photo.
    I really enjoy images of small boats – I just don’t get to see them where I live in the city and when I go to the Port, there are only big tankers etc.

    Gorgeous photo and lovely story. I grew up on the West coast of Ireland. Your post was a great reminder of its beauty. Our house was opposite a small island with a seal colony. The seals always reminded me of dogs with their antics and those great big soulful eyes – no wonder Molly was drawn to them!
