Watercolor studies continue . . .

Watercolor studies continue . . .

I have my work space back today and spent the late morning and early afternoon continuing with my watercolor studies. I’m looking forward to my visit in Connemara – I will be staying in a small cottage near Letterfrack and Kylemore Abbey which I booked through Airbnb. In order to get there I must leave Ballyvaughan on the Friday Galway bus. I will spend the night at a B&B in Galway in order to catch an early bus that will take me to Kylemore Abbey. The owner of the Connemara cottage has agreed to collect me at Kylemore Abbey. The name of the cottage is “Fushia” and I will be there for seven days.

During a break from my watercolor studies I located my Galway B&B on a Galway City Map. I was happy to see that the B&B is only a short walk from the bus station in the Galway City Center.

On Saturday I will be taking a Connemara Tour Bus from Galway to Kylemore Abbey on the 15th and will pick up the tour again on August 22nd to go onto Cong in County Mayo to see the Glebe Stone Circle.
