|Just now getting a chance to update the journey..we started e day off with a short drive along the coastline. High mountains on one side and the Atlantic on the other. The terrain is very rocky on the part of the country. They cut and dry their turf here. It is called bog. I guess the trees are Getting few and someone figured out if the bog is dried it will burn like a log. The ring of Kerry is a 110 mile drive in a loop at the southern end of Ireland. This would be a great motorcycle ride as well. Bryan has found out that their are no snakes in Ireland and wants to move. We stopped and watched a sheep herder demonstrate how the dogs herd the sheep. That was pretty cool. We also learned about the king puck sheep. Apparently when Oliver Cromwell was coming into this one area to burn the place down, the wild goat came down from the mountains into the low lands. The locals new this was not normal and figured someone was coming across the mountains. So they hid. When Oliver got to this area, there was no one their. He burned the place down but no lives were lost. Since that time, once a year several locals will go into the mountains,catch a wild goat, put it on a farm until it becomes used to people. Then for three days they clean the goat ,polish it's hooves,and feed it oats and Guinness beer for 3 days.
