Dingle and home, again

Our last stop in Ireland was on the Dingle Penninsula, southwest Ireland. A truly beautiful place, it had no internet and very poor phone coverage, so I've gotten behind on my posts. By that fifth week, we were getting pretty tired, in the best way. Overloaded with fun adventures, we took some quieter time here, enjoying local pub food and some local ruins. Our one big adventure was a boat tour of the Blasket Islands. A fascinating place, people lived without any utilities on them until the 1950's. You can learn more about them here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blasket_Islands . Our tour also included a couple wildlife experts, so we enjoyed more birds, humpback whales, and dolphins.

Driving from Wicklow to Dingle took a while, thanks to a few sidetrips to religious sites:

Choppy seas made us tired, but views were amazing!

LOVE the PUFFINS!
