    ... like a very shabby driveway, but they were in fact rural highways. We saw a lot of cows, horses, and sheep - and we do mean a lot! - but so far the road has not been blocked by livestock. There were a couple of times when we had to stop for dogs who were out for a walk by themselves down a country lane. The funniest thing we saw was on a narrow road in County Kilkenny.

    ... the tickets which includes a video and time to tour the little "museum." The boat wasn't scheduled to sail until 3:15 so we had some time to kill. We headed back to PortMagee and had a wonderful lunch at a little place called the Skellig Mist. It was excellent. In case you were curious, I went for a ciabatta with baked brie, sun dried tomatoes and roasted peppers. Extreme yumminess. Nora very much enjoyed her sliced chicken on a baguette. Let's face ...
