We headed out at about 10 to take on The Dingle Peninsula. Also at this time I started with the Dingle Peninsula jokes, which I find absolutely hilarious. For instance, you could say oh did you see his dingle peninsula? I bet THAT guy has a giant dingle peninsula. Did he put his Dingle Peninsula in your Ring of Kerry? Bahahahahaha Im not sure it will ever get old.
First stop was Inch Beach which was quite pretty. We had great sunny weather this day which made for great photographs
The countryside was absolutely breathtaking. Both literally and figuratively. Some of the things we hiked up or down left me feeling like I was back in Tukee with Erik Menegay! I am tracking the steps each day and we average about 12k. But it's also a nice reminder that I'm still chubby.
We saw a goat along the side of the road for a photo opportunity, as well as my now fave pick, the baby sheep selfie. We learned that leprechauns were actually the early Celtic people, who were quite short. Shaun sang us songs, and we heard the fuck fuck fuck chicken song. Again. We hear it every day now.
We saw the city of Dingle today and it was absolutely adorable. The highlight though by far for me was the pharmacy. Still green at this point, I asked the pharmacist for something that would help the nausea. She gave me something called Motilium and said it will work like a charm. I practically wanted to hug her. She was absolutely right. Within an hour of taking the first tablet, I was feeling again like my old self
We shopped around, checked out the statue of Fungi the dolphin, and found a few souvenirs. In one shop we stopped in, the proprietor told is she went to high school on Colorado. She made a great lunch recommendation. She also had Ted the border collie who looked terrified. She explained to is that he had been stung by a bee in the last couple of days and there was a fly on the store. He was huddled in his bed watching the air with complete fear. Poor little guy!!
We came back to the bed and breakfast and freshened up before heading into dingle for dinner. We dined at a restraint called boathouse and our waiter was Czech telling us about some hockey championship. Since we know rl nothing about hockey (even us), we just nodded our heads and smiled. Ha!
We stopped in the pub next door for some Irish music and pints. There was an impromptu music session by someone there and he did ancient of Mumford! See video. Was one of my fave moments to date!!
Home to the B and B for some zzz when Nikki wanted to get a drink at the randy leprechaun
An interesting conclusion to Day Focking Two for sure!
