Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day and The Ring of Kerry

Waterville is is a small town situated on Ballinskelligs Bay on the Ring of Kerry N70  route.  Our bus stopped here for lunch on a (surprise) cloudy, cool and misty day, but this was a colorful, friendly town with lots of photo opportunities.   Our first mission was to find a grocery store to replenish our fruit and vegetable supply and we found Mace and Fogerty’s within a few yards of each other,

 

Nearby was the Eightercua Stone row –  a megalithic tomb, thought to originate around 1700 BC

 

We happened along this roadside Irish Tinker who was primed with all the eye-candy necessary to attract tourists – of course, the bus stopped and he relieved our party of several Euros.

Below Waterville on the the Ring of Kerry is the colorful town of Sneem

I promised not to overserve so I will end my blog post with these last two pictures  – On a rare clear day, the Ring of Kerry offers hundreds of opportunities for beautiful scenes

 

I just had to include this one.  I found it fascinating how the Irish harvest peat, then dry it into logs for heating and cooking.  It smells wonderful
