Ring of Kerry / Killarney
We headed off to travel the Ring of Kerry after breakfast, around 9am. We saw green fields and hills, spectacular mountains and coastline views for the next 5 hours. The distance around the ring is about 170 km but with frequent photo stops and a lunch break and the windy narrow roads it requires some patience. The Irish drivers are courteous and patient and a pleasure to share the road with. We took far too many photos to upload but we can share those later. If the Great Ocean Road back home gets 9 out of 10 the Ring of Kerry gets 12.
Ian dropped Bronwyn & Darlene at the Killarney factory outlet mall and drove on to get some wine and to refuel the car. He had planned to write this blog in the down time while they were shopping but he barely fired up the computer and they were ready. Sadly the Irish economy is not that healthy and many stores in the mall were closed.
So after a bit more shopping we headed back to our apartment. We plan to stay in this evening and watch the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert with “home” delivered pizza & wine. Should be a good night.
