We drove to Kenmare for lunch and groceries one day. So here’s something you might want to know about Kenmare – you have to drive on the edge of a cliff on the left side of a tiny road to get there. Dad did an amazing job – but he and I were in the front and really I don’t think you could pick two worse people to lead the pack on top of a cliff.

It’s surprising how much the terrain actually feels like Cook County in Minnesota – except the mountains are bigger. Even with only one eye open I could see that it was beautiful. In fact we were driving in the area where the King of Kerry and Beara Way seem to overlap – or as Thin Lizzy might say – we were going over the Cork and Kerry Mountains.

Kenmare seemed like a nice enough town but I think our trip was overshadowed by the fact that we were going to have to go back over the cliff to get back to the house.
