Lattin/Cullen senior citizens annual outing took place on Saturday, June 30. In keeping with recent weather conditions, the day started off misty, but we knew it would take much more than this to dampen the spirits of our group.
Our first stop was in Lily Mai’s in Bunratty for a welcome cup tea, scone, and a chance to relax and chat. Compliments to Frances Fogarty who took the opportunity to mingle among us, ensuring everything was to our satisfaction. We had the chance to do some shopping in the complex before setting off for Galway
We arrived at the Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill with plenty of time to spare before our scheduled time for lunch. Many took this opportunity to work up an appetite by a brisk walk on the prom. The rest of us were content to sit in the beautiful sunroom looking out on the sea. The quality of the lunch served could easily be judged on the number of empty plates at the end of the meal.
After lunch, because of the adverse weather conditions, the group split three ways. The brave set off on a long walk soaking up the atmosphere of anticipation of the forthcoming Volvo ocean race; others ventured to the nearby shopping centre, while the remainder stayed in the hotel. Sure enough our senior citizens set the stage with a sing song which was immediately joined by another Dublin group on tour. We reluctantly set off for home at 7.30pm with the sing-along continuing on the bus all the way home.
We were missing several of our regular group this year due to illness or just not feeling fit to travel. You were very much in our thoughts and your names came up in conversation so many times throughout the day. Compliments to everyone for their punctuality at all pick-up points, which made the job of the organisers so easy. Looking forward to our next event already.
