What are they looking at? One would think it was the beautiful scenery on the Ring of Kerry in Ireland. However those two people in the first photo were trying to zoom in on the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, also known as Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, and his wife Camilla, who were visiting the area on the same day we were. The second and third photos were an attempt to zoom in with an iPhone camera, so they are a little blurry. You can barely make out the three helicopters they used to get to that spot with their group and some tiny people walking around. That would be their Royal Highnesses and their entourage. Later on that afternoon, their motorcade passed us on our way back to Killarney and when we got back to our hotel, the motorcade passed right in front of it while I was standing in the lobby. Their car windows were tinted black so you couldn't see inside, so that was as good of a glimpse as we got of the visiting royalty unless you count their cardboard likenesses we saw standing outside of one of the local restaurants later that afternoon when we were walking around in Killarney. Now if that had been Prince William and Kate or Prince Harry and Meghan down there, I may have had to get more serious about getting better photos!
Note: I have been having a difficult time commenting on some of my favorite blogs lately, so I hope no one thinks I'm not visiting. I think I may have figured out a way to work around the problem though, so hopefully it won't keep happening.
