I was asked where are the sheep...  So here is a landscape from between Kenmare and Kinsale with two grazing sheep.  I left off the pink owners mark that was on them!

Day 9
My word for the day is outstanding!
It is raining today, we have been very lucky with the weather.  Our first stop is an outstanding Stone Circle near Kenmare.  15 impressive stones in a circle.  Also a hawthorn tree where people, including all of us, hung a wish.

The town of Kenmare is our shopping and coffee stop.  Then off to  Molly Gallivan's Cottage.  An outstanding look into Irish history and a working farm with  owner/guide Stephan who is passionate about his farm.

Our tour guide had a surprise stop at Kinsale Garden of Remembrance.  A garden dedicated to the fireman who died in NYC during 911. There is a tree for each fallen firefighter.  Extremely moving and unexpected and yes, outstanding.   Worth the time to read the link.

We are now in the seaport of Kinsale and our home for tonight is the Actons Hotel.
