Today we are driving around the Dingle Penninsular and on our travels through the UK many people suggested we visited this part of Ireland. Many small roads and specky coastal cliffs. The signage with an English translation suddenly turns into Irish only and we do much more than we intend to do trying to find our way back to our route. Lots of stone cottages set into the hills and the stone walls go forever.
The weather starts to deteriorate by late afternoon and we head for the camp ground we found in the book which turns out to be in the town! It is a walled area behind a hostel type building and the book says that it is for 20 sites. The owners advise us to get our tent up quickly as there is rain coming in and it is likely to set in for the night. There are many more than 20 tents crammed into this area and after we are set up a whole crowd of German cyclists come in and put up at least another 12 tents! Andrew meets an Irish couple with 3 young boys who are now Aussies but are homesick for a bit of their former country and are visiting parents and camping to show their boys a bit of Ireland. I watch the youngest having a ball in the rain jumping in puddles and rolling in the wet grass! Decide he hasn't seen much rain in his young life. After cooking the meal we get in the van to eat it and then read our books until we are ready for bed.
