Laugh Rockydog woofs the Isles, British Isles

The British Isles have 6,000 islands, according to Wiki, and I'm on the one named Ireland. Been here for a few weeks or more, the first 2 hanging out at Martins (WheatWacker) having a grand ol' time. Learning the perils of the old habit of right hand road driving quickly, meeting his friends, not understanding a word of lengthy convos about tires and farming stuff. Martin did pick up some tires for me

It's a lot easier to mount those suckers with 2 people, he eventually put them on his 'vintage' work tractor and had it at a tractor and steam engine show

I basically lollygagged around, day rides, messing with my new to me bike, more on that later, and enjoying the local culture, like this Point to Point race a mile from his house

Helped renew the Celtic Tiger

Admired the scenery, these beauties were doing crowd/traffic control

Hearing some traditional music in the pubs

Currently holed up in a hostel near Annascaul on the Dingle Peninsula after the sun turned to this, hey, it's Ireland

But rain or shine, just another beautiful day

Two lane roads and two bit towns
