A Rockin’ Journey
Smooth stones on gorgeous beaches. Jagged stones in pastures. Stone buildings. Stone steps. You name it. Ireland has it in stone. And a walk around the Dingle Peninsula offers Ireland’s trump card.
We couldn’t help ourselves. We picked up small stones along the trail, filled our pockets as we walked, and stopped a couple times each day — on the beach, on the mountain, in pastures — to leave a little stone marker for the next hikers. With our tiny stone cairns we left a little love along the Dingle Way.
This post is for everyone who loves stone, and it’s a birthday present for Trish (of the pink rain jacket), who kept us laughing until our sides hurt — and who had to surrender her special stones at the airport. Sigh.
Time for a slideshow!
Do you have a favorite stone place or stone memory? We’d love to hear about it.
Time marches on, but stone is really forever. Sadly, this marks the end of our Ireland Appreciation Week on the Stone Bank Blog.
