As we approached the town of Tenahely, I took a picture of downtown. Kathy was off taking pictures of baby lambs somewhere....?
This is our last day of hiking on the Wicklow Way. We ended our hike with a stirring 10.5 miles through some very beautiful country. This is lambing season and every pasture has the cutest little lamb hovering around their mothers. I scared 2 baby lambs who ran clear across the pasture to their mother. She came over to berate me but I told her Kathy did it. Kathy must have taken about 300 pictures of these lambs. How many pictures of baby lambs does one need. I guess the answer is more than 300.

The weather was cool but dry thankfully. Most of the hiking was along forestry or farm access roads but still the hiking is good. Very challenging up and down the hill sides. Good training for our AT hike in MAY. We arrived in Tenahely about 1:00pm and stopped for...your wrong...a hot cup of coffee at Dlish coffee bar before heading to Madeline's B&B in downtown Tenahely. After checking into the B&B, we enjoyed some very good coffee and scones with Madeline, a lovely women who is clearly an excellent cook. Shortly thereafter, 3 young men from Germany checked into the B&B and we had a

The B&B is downtown Tenahely. Madeline is an excellent cook and we learned that the restaurant next door is for lease if anyone is interested.
nice conversation with all. After a shower and relaxing, Kathy and I headed out looking for dinner and a Guinness. We had our first beers at Black Tom's bar and learned much of the history of Gaelic football from the bartender. Afterwards, we had dinner at O'Connors bar where we ran into our German friends.
