The Blasket Islands (Sleeping Giant)
Day four started with some clear weather and sunshine. It was our day to go to the Crystal shop and see Sean Daly work his magic. He showed us how he cuts the Crystal, polishes it and gave us an opportunity to buy as much as we wanted. And we wanted a lot!!!
After visiting a few more spots in Dingle, we headed around the Dingle peninsula drive and it seemed like we stopped every 10 minutes to see one more spectacular view of the Atlantic and the rocks. We also were able to see the Blasket Islands even though the fog and mist was moving in and out most of the afternoon.
Around 4:00 we found a nice pub in Bally Fueritor where we could get a bowl of soup and a toasted sandwich and a pint of Guinness.
In Ireland, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday is called Pancake Day. Everyone fixes pancakes for dinner before the beginning of lent. The pancakes are more like a crape and filled with all types of goodies. We are heading home to our wonderful cottage with everything we need to follow the Irish way.
Tomorrow night begins our nights of traditional Irish music in the pubs! There is just so much truly world famous, but local talent living here in the Dingle area!
