    To Gort

    September 30 in Ireland

    According to google maps it should take just over 2 hours to travel from Killarney to Gort but there’s no fun in taking the direct route. I headed first to Dingle, finding a lovely beach at Inch Strand - very sandy and golden. Despite the cold cloudy day there were quite a few surfers out.
    I then took the Conor Pass over to Castlegregory. Like all of the mountain passes I have taken the scenery was beautiful. The road was quite narrow in places and I had to back up quite a bit in one spot.
    Up to Talbert and then I took the car ferry crossing from County Kerry into County Clare. I went up the coast to Lahinch and then across to Gort which is where I’m staying tonight. Basically I couldn’t decide between Ennis and Galway and Gort is halfway between. The hotel I’m in seems to be a hotel for business travellers as tonight is cheaper than the next two nights.

    Day 2

    August 5, 2016 in Ireland

    Thank all that is good, but today was a much, much easier walk. Most of it was on either gravel roads or tiny, one-lane paved roads. What a relief after yesterday! Mom and I still chose to only walk from Camp to Inch (7.2 miles) and Kathy picked us up there. This cut 3 miles off the overall journey and meant that we've spent the afternoon resting and wandering the small village we're staying in. The best part of the day? After a brief rain shower this morning it has been sunny and warm. So lovely.

    Now we are in Annascaul, home of Tom Crean, an heroic member of Ernest Shackleton's team to the South Pole in 1914-1916. He has a pub named for him and a statue of him in the town center. In the statue he is holding two puppies, so mom and I figure he had to be a pretty great guy.
