From Dublin to Brittas Bay - Day 13

(The free wifi here in Killarney is really slow, plus it's only in the library & I don't feel like risking my laptop alone overnight tucked behind a chair, so I don't think I'll be able to get full photos posted until I get back to Andy's house...but you can still read the story so far! :)

Finally - Britta at Brittas Bay! :)


(full Day 13 photos start here)

The rain is still coming down in buckets on the roof in our room at the very top of Ballymakeigh House, a farmhouse in a little village outside of Cork. Hopefully in the morning we can see what the countryside looks like from here, even if it's still raining...Until next time!

County Cork to County Kerry - Day 14

Updated now with photos! :)

(The free wifi here in Killarney is really slow, plus it's only in the library & I don't feel like risking my laptop alone overnight tucked behind a chair, so I don't think I'll be able to get photos posted until I get back to Andy's house...but you can still read the story so far! :) I will revise this entry when photos can be included... )

Thursday will be interesting...it wasn't until just before Bantry Bay that Andy realized he left his mobile phone in the charger under the bed at Ballymakeigh House, and they haven't answered their phones this evening, so we think we'll be driving back to Cork before heading to Dublin for our evening flight. If that's the worst thing that happens this whole trip, we both agree that's still pretty good! If we make good time, then hopefully we can at least drive through Limerick on the way back to Dublin airport, otherwise we'll just see more of the center of the Emerald Isle... Until next time!
