The Ring of… Fog

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

On today’s itinerary we tackled the Ring of Kerry, “Ireland’s most popular scenic drive. It takes in panoramas of rugged coastline, tall mountains, and pristine lakes.” (Ireland Day by Day, p264) You want to know what we saw? Fog.

View from Glenbaigh beach. See those clouds? Yeah, that's were we went driving. But we touched this side of the Atlantic Ocean, so that was pretty neat. 🙂

We did manage to take in some of the sites of Kerry, including the Kerry Cliffs; not as popular as the Cliffs of Mohr (which we hit tomorrow) but breath-taking all the same.

The Kerry Cliffs - You're supposed to be able to see Puffin Island, the Skellig islands, and the beehive cells (the Monks homes on the coast)

Just a tad bit windy up on the cliffs

I have to say, other than the bridge incident I did pretty well. What bridge incident, you ask? I’ll save that story for another time. 😉 (more…)
