Why Is Kerry Always Wet? - Day 1

Myself and Uta decided that we'd head for The Ring of Kerry for our holiday this year. A short break of just 5 days was all we could manage to coordinate due to our individual commitments. We camped at Wave Crest camp site just outside Caherdaniel - a very nice (if a little pricey) campsite.

On the Saturday we set up camp and lazed around for a while. Today we headed for Derrynablaha. Yes, back to that amazing valley again. Ken Williams had recently located some more carved stones that we'd been looking for ... just 50m from a panel we'd both visited quite frequently!

We visited a couple of panels down in the valley and climbed up to the main panel before climbing up to hunt for the 'new' ones. These are in a cluster of four that I'll split into two groups. As we climbed the weather was starting to turn nasty and I rushed my pictures of three of the panels - they aren't brilliant. Of the fourth I have some nice shots. The three that didn't turn out well are very eroded and need a lot of patience to catch well.

I had hoped to visit a lot more today, but the weather became atrocious mid afternoon and continued throughout the night. I was digging trenches to divert the water from our tent before retiring. We went to bed not knowing what tomorrow would bring weatherwise and knowing that my plans for visiting sites was now completely messed up.
