Fall into Galway

on

Fall and Winter have been a bit dark and dreary here in Galway but we’re trying to make the most of it!  Thankfully Galway is so stinking cute, we can’t help ourselves but get out and enjoy the weather woes together!

One of the biggest events of the year was the Macnas Halloween Parade. Macnas is a theatrical troop based in Galway and creates amazing spectacles all over the world. If I were a kid the parade would have scared me….heck, it was a little scary as an adult!  This was by far the busiest event we’ve seen all year!  The weather was agreeable and the streets were PACKED with spectators!

Another big “To Do” this fall was the Galway Christmas Market. The whole town was decorated for Christmas with a large quantity of twinkle lights, wreaths, and other festive trinkets. The market itself was a bit underwhelming but the decorations were festive and it was fun to get in the spirit and do some night photography.

Finally, we finished off the year with a freak snow storm in early December! There was not much accumulation but it was sticking to the ground a bit and our poorly insulated apartment was quite chilly.

Needless to say, we are beyond excited to be on the up-side of the winter solstice and look forward to slowly adding more light to the day!….we’re pretty sure we remember seeing the sun when we moved here in March, so hopefully thats on the horizon as well!
