This weekend will see another gathering of the boats in Kinvara. I love those old boats! I love the red sails, the black hulls, the smell of turf, everything about them.
Unloading the turf in Kinvara. In the past, the boats transported turf across Galway Bay from Connemara to Kinvara.

Let's have another one
To be honest, I prefer to see them under full sails!
Sailing out of Kinvara
A few close ups
This is one of my all time favorites!
