Day eight of our journey started out with a stop at the Cliffs of Moher.

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.

After leaving Tralee with our two new Vagabonders, we traveled to the Glanteenassig Wood nature park for a walk.

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.
