Alright, we've had some great times, activities, laughs and comforts - but the hotel in Galway is absolutely beautiful! The only drawback is that we are out of the city.... but we made the best of it by chatting in the hotel bar. All of us are looking forward to a great night's sleep in the VERY comfy beds.
But not so soon.... we had group dinner in the hotel. Preceded by an impromptu cocktail hour, we had dinner and were joined by some guests again. Six students currently studying in Galway took a cab out to see us and share their stories and Colleen Neeley '03 and her husband made the 3.5 hour drive from Cork. (Their months-old baby boy was upstairs in the hotel room with his aunt while they joined us.) Another good time had by all - many thanks to the students and alumni for joining us along the way!
We are all having a hard time believing we have just one more full day left. But it is sure to be memorable! Several of the students took a day trip to see the Burren today and think we'll love it tomorrow!
By the way, the fog lifted and we hit 20 degrees again today!
An overdue footnote: Katie and Kathy have had several close calls with motor vehicles and crossing streets but have certainly kept their senses of humor about it!
