IMG_7202 IMG_7204 IMG_7212 IMG_7183 IMG_7227 IMG_7236 we drove onto the beach and ate our little lunch

so magical. if you go to ireland - you go to western ireland to kerry and dingle. and you drive a whole lot. but it's all worth it in your hyundai rental.

route was killarney --> ring of kerry (the whole peninsula to sneem) --> to castlegregory --> dingle --> dingle peninsula --> inch beach

i guess it was the sunshine and the nice people and all the cadbury chocolate but it was just so green and sunny and pretty and i loved every bit of it.

on the ring of kerry, thanks to national geographic, we ate lunch in portmagee (because it's called portMAGEE) - and went to valentia island to see more lovely views and drive on crazy roads.

the b&b in castlegregory where we stayed, the shores, was the perfect b&b with the best irish breakfast and the nicest owner.
every pub in dingle has live music. i'm talking good music.

and then we got bread and cheese and fruits and ate our lunch on inch beach.

The shot of what must be a tidal pool, close up, is
great. The green is almost electric and the water is
like glittering silver. Eating lunch on the beach has
to be one of the most fun and most romantic things
about a trip. Glad you got to do this and again so
amazed that the weather was so beautiful. From the
looks of your jackets it must have been a little cool.
