Beara Peninsula drive (County Cork)

Today’s drive was from Kenmare to Glengarriff across the Caha pass – unfortunately we were in the clouds and couldn’t see below!  Sheep, daubed with bright colors to provide recognition for their owners, are grazing everywhere.

Along the way we encountered a man and his border collie wandering down the middle of the road. We had to stop to avoid hitting him, and it turned into a long conversation with John (who lived down the road) with Ben (his dog)! You’ve got to love the Irish!

As we entered sea level in Lauragh the skies cleared! The drive along the coast line of Kenmare Bay was very much like the Maine coastline – granite, yellow seaweed, and little fishing harbors – beautiful! Lunch comprised a seafood platter and Guinness – of course!
