Paddling in Kerry

image

This morning Finbarr drove us down to his place in Castle Cove on the Ring of Kerry. It’s what you think of when you think of Ireland but, today anyway,  without the rain. What you can’t see in the photo is the seals that are basking on the narrow rock behind the large one.

After lunch we took the kayaks out and paddled out past them to the Kenmare River, really a bay on southeast side of the Iveragh Peninsula that the Ring circumnavigates. When we swung out into the incoming tide, it and the wind carried us back to his front yard where we started.

As we returned, so did the sun. A beautiful afternoon!
