Today was our taking it easy day! We ate breakfast and mom and I walked around Banagher. We walked up and down the main street in town and checked out all of the little shops. Then Sean, Bonnie, mom, and I headed over to the library in Birr where we could access the internet. It has been a little bit strange to not have the internet, but it has been a nice break, too! I do wish that we would have been able to use Skype more often, though. When we finally got back home, Dee and grandma had the table all set and food ready to eat. It was nice to have meal all ready at a more normal eating hour after all of our late nights and strange hours. Then mom and I went and walked down around the marina in Banagher. It was nice to be outside and moving. The weather sure has been nice while we have been here! We have been spoiled!

Today we drove to the Dingle peninsula. It was quite a narrow and windy road to get there, but it was beautiful! Along the way we stopped at the Inch Strand and saw the beach. It is this crazy strip of sand that sticks out into the water. The Inch Strand and a few other beaches on the peninsula are hot surfing spots for the locals….definitely wear a wetsuit and still plan on being cold! No thank you! Anyway, the clouds, sun, mountains, sand combination while we were at Inch was beautiful! As we got to the town of Dingle the rain started. We checked into our bed and breakfast (Brownes Bed and Breakfast) and it was super cute. We tried to go out and drive the loop around the tip of the peninsula, but decided to turn around. Because of the rain we couldn’t see much of anything and the driving was a little scary! We headed into Dingle town for dinner at a quaint little restaurant and then called it a night.
