      ... it runs into Galway Bay, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. There were swans swimming in the bay. They just sat there while we took pictures of them. It looked like they were posing at times!

      We then headed out to a beach along the Atlantic Ocean. It was a view that went on forever! I found a couple pieces of sea glass. We found a light house down on the coast, and we headed that way. It was beautiful to walk towards the lighthouse. We thought we ...
