Hiking 7:00:00 [3] 1275.0 mi (20 / mi) +700m 20 / mi
shoes: Merrell

Foilmore to Waterville

Steep, rough climb up from b&b to ridge to meet the main trail. Rough footing along ridge with some light rain and mist and then down to road. Easy walk on quiet roads then up another ridge. This one was very long and the sun was shining for much of it so the views were terrific. Could see the bay and lake near Waterville and green valleys on either side of the ridge. Road walk into town.

Overnight at Golf Links view B&B, which was a mile outside of town along the busy n70, Ring of Kerry. Dinner Seacrest restaurant. The b&b owner nicely drove us there and took us home.
