After I got off the plane I had to sit around the Dublin Airport for a few hours until Zoe and Gerry showed up. I waited and waited until Merel finally showed up to tell me that their flight was delayed and they wouldn't be around for another few hours. She asked me if I wanted to take a walk. Of course I did. I didn't know exactly what was in store but I was not disappointed.
and hiked some more, finding ruins along the way
And upUp more
We were far up. If you look at that first picture, we hiked up the right side then up the left where we were when I took this picture of Merel.
Looking back down at the lake.
Here are the ruins again.
This is the path we walked up way down there. You couldn't see it zig zagged quite as much from the bottom of the walk. It was particularly hard because the pathes were very rocky and had large stones you had to climb up and over.
The lake, you can see the parking lot waaaaaay down there.
Where the river runs into the lake.
