We lived here for a week! (heavy sigh...)
Our "neighbor" in Dingle was an older gentleman who was said to have Parkinson's disease. He owned a small rowboat which he used on nice days. Ted took a whole series of shots of this boat, ending with the old man in the boat.

The day started with a wet, kind of stinky hike, but ended quite beautifully...
