We rented a car at the airport.
Enterprise was in a little room removed from the rest of civilization ... they must have ticked off someone at the airport. Tom agreed to drive (an act of unselfishness that I am sure he has regretted ever since).
After agreeing to the insurance clause by depositing our first born children, we were off.
No one returns rental cars with rear view mirrors still attached. They are ripped off by the foliage along the sides of the roads.
It was a pretty cool picture though.
We drove from Dublin to Kinsale .... the food capital of Ireland ... and had lunch at the Blue Haven Cafe.
Great cafe with lots of atmosphere. The Irish are not known for tasty food but I discovered that the food DID have a taste.
All the food pretty much tasted the same.
Except for the gas stations ...
The gas stations were the best. Not only did they serve good food but they had hair salons, spas, pharmacies, dry cleaners, everything.
AND ... they had 3000 forms of Cadbury chocolates.
Here is the view from our room.
Despite rain showers every few hours that last about five minutes ... Ireland is truly one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Part 3 to come ...
