Dingle Way; Day 4 Dingle to Dunquin-21K

The Blaskets

First some pictures from east of Dublin Town. Saw Fungi, the local dolphin of the past 40 years or so, in the harbor hanging around a boat.

Left Grapevine Hostel around 8:30 following the road and then up into the hills a bit before winding back to Ventry Beach.  There was a small shop and tea house just before the beach so I stopped in for a tea and delicious scone.

Then a long walk down Ventry Beach before going back into the hills and a long walk around the southwest tip of Dingle Peninsula offering first views of the Skellig Islands far away.

Skelligs in the distance

And then The Blaskets just a K or two off the shore.

First sight of the Blaskets

Took it slow as the views were not to be missed or rushed.

I arrived at Gleann Deag B&B about mid afternoon and it was nice enough to relax outside while sipping Irish Tea.

I got to talking with 3 Irish women staying there and ended up going out to dinner with them. Bridget shared a story of her friend, Myra Brennan, who having just completed her second consecutive Camino de Santiago in June 2003,  died in her sleep in Santiago.
