Today, we took a day off of the trail and enjoyed the small village of Anascaul. Last night at the pub, our friendly bartender told us that we should take a walk to the Anascaul Lake, so we did! Our B & B host packed us a lunch (after having to drive us to Dingle to get cash... long story, ask!). It was about a 2.5 mile walk out there...which seemed relatively short in comparison to the last two days.
The scene could not have been more ideal. The lake is set between two mountains. We sat on a blanket on a little grassy patch which sat above the lake. From where we ate our picnic, we could watch the lake, the sheep-dotted mountains, and the grassy field flowing with the wind. Did I mention we were the ONLY ones out there? It was perfect! The scene would be and should be the set for Damien Rice's "The Blower's Daughter." I may have to phone him and let him know.
We got quite silly with the camera...we won't post those pics here because they're on the other camera! We'll show you when we return!!!
That night we ate at the South Pole Inn, which used to be Tom Cream's home.
Another great day!
