Ballyheigue And Banna Beach.

 When we walked to Blennerville the other week.  I saw signs for the North Kerry Way.  Instead of walking it all we decided yesterday to have a look at two places along the route: Ballyheigue and Banna beach in County Kerry.

Here's  some photos:

Looking out to sea.
It was a grey showery day.  
You don't  see packed beaches in Ireland.  The lack of crowds and a very small population is one thing  that I have liked living in Ireland for the last twenty years.  

A rather cool notice.

Give your litter a lift.

A recycling bin and a litter bin.  It's  a pity other counties don't  have bins like these.

It passed an hour or two and it was somewhere that we haven't  visited for a while.  I wanted to go for a walk and the wife said: 

"You're like a bloody dog.  All you ever want to do is go for a walk". 



  1. Dogs like to do other things too - such as licking their bollocks. By the way I could not see any bananas on Banana Beach!

    1. Banana Beach would have been another hit sinle by Martha and the Muffins YP. ๐ŸŒ

    2. It's a habit of mine
      To watch the sun go down
      On Banana Beach
      I pulled my trousers down.

  2. It is good to have a long stretch of unspoilt beach with no crowds. Love the idea of the recycling bins too. Hope they get used properly?

  3. Very true JayCee. Far away from the madding crowds or the world and his wife? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  4. Good to see there are bins there and they are being used. You have beautiful beaches and countryside. Much nicer not to have them ruined with rubbish.
    Your wife has a droll humour! She is obviously not a walker

  5. Hi Linda. She's starting calling me Rover๐Ÿ•‍๐Ÿฆบ. J will walk in the Algarve where it's flat and sunny. They have recycling bins everywhere. Even plastic bottle bins.

  6. Walking is addictive - and human - it make us better people; or at least that's what I say to Jane.

  7. Walking is very human and addictive Mark. It's also a great way of getting inspiration and give you things to write about. Charles Dickens would walk over twenty miles in a day and no doubt met his characters for his books. Thanks for your thoughts.
