    ... the caves we continued south into Ireland and drove for 3 hrs. We ended up in Galway. It is a seaside city. It was still really windy and rainy. Had our first real bad day of weather.

    Eventually, after negotiating the crawling traffic of Galway City in rush hour, we find the home of Martin and Sue, our hosts for the night.
