Slea Head

After a busy first day driving and changing tires, we leisurely spent the day Friday driving around the Dongle peninsula.  We went briefly into town where the local "market was on", and got lunch.  We then drove the scenic coastal route of Slea Head.  Very beautiful.  Then, back home for fish & chips, with live music.  More on the music, later...

Oh yes ...

So, per the post below, we had to get a new tire, as one of ours blew during the last 15 miles of yesterday's drive. Michael changed it in about 10 minutes flat. (pun not intended : ) Let the adventures begin!

Dingle, Ireland

We're staying at this lovely B&B, where the proprietor's name is Jill and her cat's name is Punch. Punch is a vocal feline who enjoys attention from visitors, while his owner is quite lovely and attentive. We enjoyed a splendid breakfast in the sunroom, then had our tire fixed and shopped at the (Friday only) outdoor market for lunch. Beth's former Ireland compadres will be glad to know we are supplementing bread, cheese and fruit with their favorite biopot yogurt : )  Off for a drive around the peninsula - cheers!

Taking off....

We are about to head out for two weeks in Europe, with only a carryon each. Crazy, but fun.  Can't wait! Destination Ireland.
