June 12, 2015The Warm Embrace of Friendship Renewed – Firenze (Days 17 – 19; 10 – 12 June)
At the Graiguenamanagh Tinnahinch Regatta: Sunday 2 August 2015 (Day 70)
The regatta entailed, mostly, young people who looked very cold for having spent time in the Borris River while swimming, splashing, diving, etc. There was a brass band with an average age in their late 60s, an excitable announcer I couldn’t understand, cheering friends and family, and a photographer from the local paper to record the lot.
It was really charming. We finished the day with 99s and I felt a part of this quiet country Irish lifestyle.
