    Guinness Number Two

    Thanks Jess from North Carolina for buying me Guinness number two!

    A great pub in Kenmare. The best place I have eaten so far. I had the cottage pie.

    The O'Leary and O'Sullivan House

    Flor O'Leary and Mary O'Sullivan's house by the sea from 1889 - 1915
    Also home to their 12 children

    The Living Room?

    Barn just east of the house

    The Beara Peninsula

    A stray. We have a lot in common when you think about it.

    "Look, I can make my nostrils go real big."

    For a time, I had my own private beach. There's nothing like a cold swim to make you feel clean and refreshed. Well other than a shower I guess, but they are too heavy to carry.

    I hope to retire to someplace like this. If I could ever stop spending all my money visiting places like this. 

    The property owner was watching me take this.
    Sometimes you just have to not care about that to get the shot you want.

    In Ireland, they get as much use out of their things as possible.
    If it ain't broke, don't replace it.
    Ahh, why couldn't I have been born a sheep, I could live here!

    A very common style of home in Southwest Ireland. A not so common view.

    There are miles of coastline trail to be hiked on the Beara Way trail. Put this on your life list!

    An interesting rock formation. I like how the nearly vertical strata shows that the earth is always moving. You would too if you were a nerd like me.

    A wider angle

    I had to camp on private property, but I don't think people care much about that in Ireland.
    The wind was too strong at high elevation, so I had to get to lower ground, where there was nothing but private property, to setup camp.
