Some Kerry Photos

On Thursday we drove the Ring of Kerry with Norman and Janet. Killarney National Park began the ring, but iron age forts, potato famine cottages, beautiful coastal scenery, great food, and narrow roads all contributed to a great day. Here are a few photos.

Steig Fort is an relatively intact ring fort that sits on high ground some distance from the sea, but within sight of the harbor entrance. Skellig Michael is one of the most famous sites where Irish monks retreated during the dark ages to maintain art and literature. Boats go there, but it is a steep and treacherous climb to the monks’ stone huts. Last year two women died while climbing the steps. It has been too windy for any boats to go to islands, but we wouldn’t have tried it anyway.

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.

    Love the Sedum picture! Interesting history and picutres — thanks for the links so I can recapture some of the history. Being our ages, the memory isn’t what it used to be. Poatato famines have long gone from memory banks so the refresher is great! Some pieces of the picture may never have entered the memory banks such as the ring forts–very interesting and I bet fascinating to see in person. Pictures are the next best thing! Thanks for sharing.
