When the strand is full... feel free to use the car park

Dingle peninsula, Kerry

There are very few simple pleasures left in Ireland,

but driving your car onto a beach in Kerry and looking at Mt. Brandon is one of them. There's something about a windscreen that magnifies the natural beauty. 

Lining up the arc of Fermoyle strand between the slant of the wipers. Listening to Joe Duffy as he forces a world of misfortune out through your stereo speakers... What could be finer?

The beach is also a grand place to teach you six-year old how to drive. Just ask the man in the black SUV as he blithely rolls over sandcastles. - It's always the same; there's never a tsunami around when you need one.
