This lovely lake is located about 5 km from our house.
I have decided that too much vacation can be a bad thing. I have grown weary of traveling all over to see things. The only things that we had still wanted to see are the pricier items and I can’t justify it yet. The Aran Islands require a ferry passage to reach them and the Bunratty Castle and Folk Park offers the medieval dinner and musical entertainment but that alone runs about €60 for each of us. So we are keeping closer to home and trying to not spend much. Today we went off in search of two more geocaches in the area. It is the one thing I appreciate about the hobby above all else. The two areas that we went to today were not anywhere that I would have ventured to otherwise. Both geocaches were located on the tops of hills where I had to walk a distance to reach their spectacular views. It makes me reconsider my desire to hike to the peak of Ireland’s highest mountain and hit the geocache located there. I am breathing hard after hiking to the top of a small mountain, what is a big mountain going to do to me??
The View from Caragh Geocache
We have a 360 view from up here, just gorgeous.
first geocache was Caragh View
. It was located on a smaller hill with a fabulous 360° view all around us. I took a short video clip of it and the wind was blowing so hard that you can’t hear a word that I was saying. Good thing because Robert was quick to tell me that I was completely retarded when it came to the local geography and that Killarney was not located where I said it was. So the wind came in handy after all. Probably easier than replacing the boyfriend, lol. We dropped the Little Texan travel bug and picked up the Explorer
The next and last geocache was Buddy’s World
and it was recently placed in memoriam of a dog that had passed away in September. We were only the 4th people to hit the cache so that was a first for us. We also picked up a Euro geocoin
and dropped off Erin the Bear TB. This cache was also located on a taller hill with another great view. The cache details said that Ross Behy hill was used as a launching point for hang gliders, none of whom were present today. We parked at the bottom near the

We dropped off the Texan TB here in this geocache.
gate and walked straight up the incline, the only time I’ve wished I were a goat. Afterwards, we followed the recommendation to drive down to the Glenbeigh Strand and walk on the beach. Robert collected more seashells to take home to Erika.
We finished off the day but heading home and just relaxing. Robert made a simple dinner and we watched television. I am ready to pack up my bags and head home, Ireland is beautiful but it just isn’t the same as home. Not to mention, my girlfriends are all scrapping without me! Who knows what we’ll do tomorrow, probably sleep in again.
