As I mentioned yesterday, the Sou’Wester excursion involved more than just strolling around wearing funny seaman hats. In each of the pubs we visited we were met by an Irish folk band. Joined by our kilted bagpipe playing guide and his fiddle, they played and sang a variety of Irish songs. The overall event is what is known as a Ceilidh (pronounced Kay-lee), a traditional Gaelic social gathering.
These images are a touch grainier than I’d like. It was very, very dimly lit in this bar (the Lower Deck in Halifax, amazing place!), and I had to crank the ISO way up past the reasonable performance of my camera. Even so, I rather like the effect, it gives the images a nice feel.
The cruise overall was incredibly enjoyable, and the Ceilidh was inarguably our favorite part. That makes it an appropriate place to end the series of cruise images. Tomorrow I’ll move on to new subject matter to finish of the remaining nine days of the Photos to 40 project.
