Lunchtime Photo

This is a view of the Irish coastline near Whitestrand. I think the far spit of land is where our house was located, about a mile inland from the tip of the peninsula.

This is a good example of “just point your camera and you’ll get something gorgeous,” which is pretty typical of County Kerry. If, like me, you’re a photographer of limited skill, a vacation in Kerry is very rewarding.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
