Dingle Peninsula

After Tralee, we crossed over to Dingle town, looked around it a bit, and then began driving the Dingle peninsula, stopping at the Blaskets Centre and then over-nighting near Slea Head.
We were on or near the "Wild Atlantic Way" the better part of
the next ten days; "wild" indeed...while the visibility was good,
the wind  was really up

Typical view

Unless you have a death wish, you drive the peninsula clock-wise,
as the tour-buses and heavy goods vehicles are required to do; ever
since Norway, Vicki often handles the camera in order to distract
herself from the road...

This bit of Ireland is covered in stones and stone fences and
stone everything

Looking out toward Slea Head and Ireland's land's end

"The road goes ever on and on, down from the door where it

Slea Head parking area

Ever on, hoping not to encounter a tour bus...

Wild Atlantic

Tour bus in extremis

More wild Atlantic

One of the world's great seascapes
