‘Have you done the Ring?’ is a question on the lips of many visitors to the south-west of Ireland. For those not in the know, what they’re talking about is the famous Ring of Kerry, one of the three peninsulas in the area, the others being Dingle and Beara. From Killarney to Kenmare, the Ring winds around the coast – and remember, you must drive these narrow roads clockwise - with scenery that changes from the wild Atlantic on the west side to the calmer waters of Kenmare Bay on the other. In between, find deserted beaches, medieval ruins, rugged mountains and peaceful valleys. It doesn’t make any difference if the weather is a bit inclement – this is Ireland, after all. The scenery is magnificent, sunshine or rain. To enjoy it properly, take your time. Stop off in the towns and villages and enjoy a slower pace of life.April 25, 2012 Like Add a Comment
Our theme this week is water in all its many manifestations--oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds, streams, waterfalls, geysers, hot springs, oceans--even human-made bodies of water like pools, fountains, and aquariums. As always, if your favorite aquatic spot isn't on our list, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and an editor will respond within 24 hours (and stay tuned, soon it will be even easier to add new places on our new iPhone app).
Prizes: $100 writing contract, $100 photography contract, and, for our best West Coast writing and photography entries (WA, OR, CA, or NV), two getaways to Lake Tahoe, one of America's most beautiful bodies of water.
