We got up on our own….wasn’t hard since I didn’t sleep as much as I might have liked. The no A/C is a bummer for someone like me who doesn’t do hot well. But, breakfast was good with eggs and toast!! We got a little late start, but headed off to tour the Ring of Kerry. It is a peninsula off Ireland and it was just beautiful. We stopped several places along the morning for photos. Each view was just breathtaking.
The first stop was the Bog Museum where you learned about how they harvest the blog for fuel and other uses. Bog is kind of like jello with water, dead trees, etc. that have formed this blog stuff. Once it dries out, then they can use it for a variety of stuff.
From there we went to tour the Ring of Kerry stopping for several views. Brian also shared some of the history, but since I’m a little tired today I’m not sure my notes makes much sense. I’ll have to sort some of that out once I get home. But, here is some of the images.
We drove on and had lunch in a small little town. I had a lovely BLT sandwich which was great.
We then drove back to Killarney. We went to the National Park and took a Jaunting Horse ride through the park. It was beautiful. While we are there, we stopped at Ross Castle and took some photos, too. It was a fun sightseeing adventure.
After the park, we explore Killarney. We did some shopping and just taking in the city. We had so much fun that we opted to not take the bus back to the hotel and ate dinner at the Caragh Restaurant where I had an awesome cheeseburger.
We walked back to the hotel which was only about 15 minutes and now I’m ready to crash! Hopefully it will get a little cooler tonight! But, the plus side is the warm weather has brought lots of sunshine, so we’re getting great views that we might not have gotten otherwise!
