Just stopping for breath back in our hotel room before we check out a restaurant and a music session tonight. Had a good day wandering around Galway - lots of interesting people out in the sunshine. Dropped into O'Maille's, the first shop ever to sell Aran sweaters. Had a lovely informative chat with Anne O'Maille, who agreed to do a cable workshop for us and bring along some vintage Arans to our Show & Share. Very exciting to meet her and look around her shop.
Spent some time people watching outside a local bar with my first Guinness of the trip, before checking out two other yarn stores and exploring the music scene which is, as you might imagine, very vibrant.
Off to find the craic now - supper at a fabulous restaurant by the Spanish arch, which prides itself on cooking local and organic food, then along to sample some music - I'll be taking along my spoons!
Tonight's supper - I had the goat's cheese and Philip had polenta, both were superb - it's a hard life on the road! Night night.
