We were up early and had a nice breakfast at our hotel before heading out to see the Connemara region. It was a little rainy when we set out and the forecast called for rain all morning and likely in the afternoon as well. The clouds made the landscape look really nice, but it didn't photograph well. It's such a different area from the rest of Ireland. It was very rocky and there were little lakes and ponds everywhere. We had a nice drive up ...
This weekend may be our last chance to take a big trip in Ireland. The tourism really dies down in November and doesn't pick up again until March, so places are starting to shut down for the offseason and the days are definitely getting short.

We caught the ferry at 11:30 am and returned at 5:15pm. After a light lunch at the pub we walked 2 1/2 hours on the island. There were only 15 other visitors with us. In summer the island is packed with tourists so we were fortunate to have the place to our selves. ...
