A Seafari Boat Trip, Kenmare, Kerry, Ireland - 3rd August 2017

After a bit of a wander around Kenmare (Ceann Mara), it's time for a boat trip as we head out to sea (well, nearly) on the "Seafari" cruise to see wildlife, in particular a seal colony. The boat leaves from Kenmare harbour, where there's an anxious wait for the rest of the group to variously appear, turns out to be good fun, surviving the inevitable longeurs largely thanks to the chatty and fact-packed Cap'n Birdseye chap at the helm.
