Catching Up With The News

Our friends Norman and Janet arrived on Tuesday so we have been on the go since then and haven’t been to the pub to check messages and blog. Tuesday was settling in, Wednesday we toured the historic sites and scenic wonders of the Dingle Peninsula. The first one is just a couple of hundred yards from our house – the Gallarus Oratory. It was a cloudy and drizzly day, but we kept dry most of the time as we made our way around. It was too windy to take a ferry out to the Blasket Islands. I will post some pictures in a couple of days.

Today we drove the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Skellig. This is the peninsula south of Dingle. There was one major historic site – a fairly well preserved ring fort from about 100 AD. However, the Kerry peninsula has outstanding scenery, particularly if you take the Ring of Skellig road out at the end. That part does not allow tour buses, so it is much more remote. Again, photos to follow.

Unfortunately, on the way home a warning light came on in our car indicating that the bonnet is open. However, the bonnet is not open. We will have to call Avis tomorrow to ask what to do about it. This weekend we will post some pictures and more detailed comments.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    In regard to catching up with the news, “scenic wonders of the Dingle Peninsula” would make a good caption for one of Anthony Weiner’s tweets.
