First Day on the Kerry Way Trail

This is the long straight road out of Kenmare
Black face? In this day and age? That is so offensive.

When I turned to look at the view behind me, I nearly climbed over this fence to set camp on a hill. It was just so beautiful. Since I had a couple more hours of daylight, I convinced myself to keep going.

Have I mentioned I love Ireland?
The sun set, so I setup camp next to the road, the only
flat piece of ground suitable for a tent for the last few miles.

I didn't realize until after I set up, but just to the left of my tent, a sign clearly says "no camping." I would be up early, so didn't expect to see anyone. Then I saw a woman hiking down the trail. "Oh... Hello. I didn't think I would see anyone out here," she said. "Yeah me either," I said. "Which is why I felt safe setting up camp here."
