Greetings, dear friends and Happy Friday to you each and every one.
Oh, it's Saturday night? Just a leeetle late, eh?
Thanks ever so much for all the lovely comments to my last photo, how I love to be validated by the world right!

So... There was a huge tour bus in the parking area for visitors, and an eager group traveled up the winding path with us, commenting on the beauty of the hillsides, bemoaning they only had ten minutes before the bus would leave. For the hundredth time I thanked my lucky stars I was with my personal tour guide, and not being herded from one landmark to another in the rushed sightseeing frenzy I saw everywhere in Ireland. Thank you, Peter ;o)


"There are two ancient Stone Ring Forts located just north of Cahersiveen, in Co. Kerry, Leacanabuail and Cahergal."

The rest of this fascinating history is here:

I viewed in large screen - I could see Peter better ha ha
Great photo with contrasts between the stones and the grass... And the lighting is prerfectly directed at the fort ring..
I can understand the the herding of the tourists on the bus,,,they, most of the time, give only a quick view...When in Ireland/Scotland with friends we rented a car and was able to travel at our own pace which was wonderful
