A Little Excursion

Since it was a nice day yesterday we decided to go for a little tour. We were a little late in leaving, thanks to a lazy lump so I didn't get as far as originally planned.  
We went to Killarney National Park, well just a very small part of it and stretched our legs, only to be stopped by a big puddle on the walk, well I had my wellies so I could've carried on ;)  which I did for a few yards or I wouldn't have got these two photos.

I just love the autumn colours in the second one, well if I'd been the one in boots I would have gone through that puddle with them or barefoot........ wouldn't be the first time, nor the last!
So after returning to the car it was time to resume the exploration, which entailed the twisty and curviest road that I have ever been on. This lead to my next photo of Ladies View.

At this time of year the colours are really contrasting and can really make the view that you see.  We continued on to Moll's Gap, turned towards Kenmare and headed out towards Sneem.  We stopped for our packed lunch by the sea at Templenoe (I think), basically we just took a left turn in the hope that it would take us to the sea.  Where we feasted on potato salad and fritatta which I made the night before...Yum!!
We wanted to be on a familiar road before dark so when we reached Sneem we took the other road to Moll's Gap, which had some breath taking views too.  Needless to say it was dark by the time we got to Tralee, and the low beam wasn't working on one side (again) so have to send the car to the garage to have that sorted before I feel like I have only one good eye!! That's the first time we used the car since the new bulb went in so it's something electrical, hopefully cheap!!

  1. what beautiful photos. I love the scenery around Kerry and Cork. We spent a week near Bantry this year and drove all around. Some friends were competing sailing near Tralee so we drove out via Killorglin. The scenery was breathtaking as was the road.
