Day eight of our journey started out with a stop at the Cliffs of Moher. http://www.cliffsofmoher.ie/

And some more views:
We were on a bit of a tight schedule, as we had to get to Tralee to meet a train. We crossed the River Shannon on the ferry on the way. Rob and Kristinia wouldn’t be smiling soon.
We were about to lose them in Tralee. A profound sadness was descending over the group.
Sean asked Gina to guard the Vagatron.
In Tralee, we said goodbye to Rob and Kristinia, as they left to catch a train to Dublin returning to Dallas. No more butt-slapping as we got out of the Vagabonder.
We were joined in Tralee by Pub Patty and Za Za Javonne for the remainder of the trip. A sad loss but a welcome addition.
Some sights of Tralee:
After leaving Tralee with our two new Vagabonders, we traveled to the Glanteenassig Wood nature park for a walk. http://www.discoverireland.ie/Activities-Adventure/glanteenassig-wood/78255
It was another misty Irish day, making for a rather damp walk, but enjoyable nonetheless.
An enchanted forest. We might have been in the Middle Earth.
Totally enchanted, we left the pretty park, and took a foggy ride over Connor Hill to Dingle for our over night stay, in fact our only two night stay of the trip. View from Connor Hill.
Dingle is a delightful town, a good choice for our only two night stay.
Gina and I spent several pleasant evening hours at the O’Sullivans Courthouse Pub, talking with locals and listening to music.
We were spied upon by a couple of lurkers.
We ate a late, excellent meal at the Dingle Pub, then returned to the hotel, another full day.
