Yay! The rain stopped. We spent the day enjoying the beautiful sunny weather. In the morning we watched the runners of the Dingle Marathon pass right in front of our Bed and Breakfast…when we decided to head to Dingle for the weekend we had no idea there was a marathon until we tried to find a place to stay. Luckily our Bed and Breakfast has a cancellation, so we actually found a place! It was neat to see all of the people out running…and then head back inside for our yummy breakfast. I had a fruit and cheese plate. I got to try all sorts of new and yummy cheeses, many of them made by the owner, John’s, sister. Impressive! We then headed into town to see what we had missed during the rain. The harbor was beautiful, we did some shopping, stopped at Murphy’s Ice Cream shop again and then made the drive around the peninsula. Then it was time to head north on our way back to Shannon for our morning flight home. We took the ferry from Tarbert to Killimer and BARELY made it in time. They were in the process of closing up the gates when we showed up and they were nice enough to open it back up so we could drive on. It was fun to ride on the ferry…definitely something I don’t get to do every day!

Time to travel home! Not anything super exciting…no earthquakes or anything! J I really enjoyed my quiet time away and seeing new places, but I was glad to be headed home. I missed Nate and those girlies! Luckily Miss Camille still remembered mommy and Hannah and Allison woke up for a bit to say hi. It was nice to be home again!
