Lex!

How did you know??? (Have we met?)

That's my home village! Dún Chaoin, at the very tip of the Dingle Peninsula. The westernmost village in Ireland.

The house is up on the hill, to the right of those crags (Miannán Mór-- the big crown). In fact, there's a car in the drive. Now who could that be? (No caravan, it must not be Lex.)

Down below is the little harbour, from which you can take the ferry to Great Blasket Island. Have you done that?

When were there? We could have had had a pint down at Kruger's.

Thanks so much for this! I am amazed.

Dingle

>> How did you know??? (Have we met?)

In one of your posts you mentioned Dingle. That triggered me to post the photo. What a coincidence the choice is! We liked the spot very much.
We made an Ireland tour in 1998, from Dublin to Dublin. We visited the beautiful Wicklow Mountains, Kilkenny, Killarney (Ring of Kerry), Doolin (Cliffs of Moher, Burren).
From Killarney we did a one day Dingle tour. Starting in pouring rain, slowly clearing to bright sun.

Uhhh...??? :conf

I thought it was just a ferry for sheep. We didn't take the ferry, but have walked down (and up).

You're welcome. :cheers
I have a question: where do you live now? In the US and/or in Ireland?

Hi again, Lex

Just joking about you being the car in the driveway! But I can see that there is a car parked in front of the house. If you can tell me the date of the photo I can tell you if I was there then--not that it's important. To answer your question, I go back and forth between Ireland and the US, spending two to three months a year in Ireland.

Dingle

Robert,
The date: july 22, 1998 (thanks to Rita's little diary).

So your house is the one at the entrance of the 'harbour road'?

Lex...

Actually there are two houses there across from the laneway that goes down to the harbour. The house I am referring to is further up, on the hill above the village.

No, I wasn't there when you visited. I try to be well away from Ireland in late July and throughout August. There are just too many visitors at those times. I'm around in May, June, sometimes early July, September and sometimes into October. Feel free to ring me if you are ever in the area. 086-353-7601. The first pint is on me!

Trac

Ford Sport Trac. I've been meaning to tell you Ron, My son has one of those. he fell in love with it when he took me to pickup my Escape. we had just pulled his little front wheel up and out the drive during one of the big snows. in fact, the same snow that made me decide on a 4x4 Escape and not a front wheel PT. (for which my Tom is ever so grateful) It took him 8 months thinking about it, but he got it and he is very happy with it. Never thought about it as a tow vehicle. I'll have to watch him around my TT. He'll want to borrow it.:wak
