Ring of Kerry

The Ring of Kerry is really nice. It's like the Hane Coast of Maui, but without the tropical rain forests, and little easier to drive, which I guess makes it not that much like the Hane Coast, but I'll stick to my analogy.

The ring takes you around the Kerry peninsula, occassionally passing through small towns, but for the most part large farm fields with sheep, hills, mountains, and coastline. While we were pulled off on the side of the road to take some pictures and old Irish guy appeared to chat with us about the poor quality of the Kerry soil. After we got back into the car we looked around to see where the old man had gotten off to and was gone, *poof*.

We stopped for a bit at a beautiful beach cove, which, continuing the tropical analogies, was like a island beach, but with colder water. There are some really nice photos in the photo gallery.

There are also some nice photos from a hill we climbed about halfway around the peninsula. There was a large parking lot, just waiting to trap tourists and their tour buses. meta and I went up a large hill adjacent to the lot in order to escape the throngs and get a better view. We could still hear the Wild Rover on accordian, but it was otherwise peaceful.
