FOTO FINISH - summer fun - diversio estiuenca

There are a lot of festivals going on in the summer here. This is a really nice one in the village next to where we live, it's called the Cruinniu na mBad, the Meeting of the Boats. It's on every August, depending on the tide it will fall on the second or third weekend. People wait at the pier for the Curraghs to come from Connemara, on the other side of Galway Bay, to deliver the turf.
There are plenty of stalls with food, crafts and live music on the pier. This is last year, Hana had great fun with the bouncing balls that a man had for sale. She got her own one at the end, of course!

Hi ha molts festivals aqui a l'estiu. Aquest es diu Cruinniu na mBad, la trobada dels vaixells. Es fa cada Agost, depenent de la marea cau en el segon o tercer cap de setmana. La gent s'espera al moll per l'arribada dels Curraghs, els vaixells tipics de Galway, que venen des de Connemara, a l'altra banda de la badia de Galway, llestos per descarregar la torba. Hi ha moltes paradetes al moll, de menjar, artesania i musica en viu. La Hana s'ho va passar molt be amb aquestes pilotes. Al final va aconseguir la seva!
