... challenge. A flight of stairs were between our rooms and the bar below. While maintaining a firm grip on the balustrade we nursed our tired legs the final few steps to the quickly-filling bar where we pulled up a chair, ordered a round of drinks and reflected on our achievement. Officially we covered around 123 kilometres on the Dingle Way, plus the distance we had to cover between the walk and our accommodation each night and the walk we did on our "rest" day.

I bought a book on the folklore of the place; we'll see what ...

Study, tea, study, lunch ( lón) more study, long dinner break, then back to the school for Irish dancing. On the long break I found my way to the ocean, so powerful and beautiful.

... the next 5 1/2 hours looking in shops and going to 3 different pubs for wi-fi and a place to sit. Ha ha. The John Benny Bar, Murphy's and The Dingle bar. We needed wifi because it was the only way to be in touch with Susan to meet back up. We didn't know how long it would take. They saw us outside Murphy's bar and we went to get dinner. Later had ice team and walked around some more and then came back to our ...
