I’m a few days behind on the blog. So I’m just going to combine the last few days. Hiking like this, and being a little older, by the time we’re done for the day, we’re exhausted! It’s been absolutely beautiful, and an experience of a lifetime. I must admit though, at times I’ve overestimated my abilities. So, instead of saying I hiked The Kerry Way, it will be, I hiked SOME of the Kerry Way. With over 70 miles on our feet, I’m not feeling any shame.

Waterville to Cahersiveen

This was an over 12 mile day with over 1,000 foot climbs, and they were steep climbs. The wind and rains were wicked and we crossed bare mountain ridges. At times the wind was so strong, the rain stung our faces. It was one of those “whose idea was this days” The scenery was gorgeous though.

Perhaps a leprechaun’s house?

Lots of rainbows helped with attitude!

Cahersiveen to Glenbeigh

We shortened this day and hiked about 7 miles, instead of the 13. Mark can hike forever, unfortunately for him, I have my limitations. It was a lovely day with some sun and a walk by Dingle Bay.

Glenbeigh to Glencare

We walked the whole route to Glencare and it was a great hike with some altitude climbing.

Our path was roads, grass walkways and stone walkways

Only a couple of more walking days left!
