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