Moran's on the Weir

Shannon Airport welcomed us to Ireland late yesterday afternoon. Arny and Tracy picked us up, and as we drove towards Galway and their temporary house (for the year), we stopped for a seafood dinner, all from local waters. The sun was almost setting as we arrived at Moran's on the Weir, a restaurant that's been in business for something like 300 years. The landscape reminded me of a painting by J.M.W. Turner.

Rooks were flying over the thatched roofs nearby.
I had a prawn and crab salad. The waitress says the prawns are definitely local and not farmed. 
Tracy's salmon.

I definitely can see Turner in that first picture. We'd need a more dramatic sky, but the scene does remind me of him. Did you see the movie about him (_Mr. Turner_)? Not the most attractive personality, but interesting. Anyway, fun post -- you always have interesting things to say.
