Harbor in Autumn - Baltimore, County Cork, Ireland
County Cork, Ireland is filled with a lot of small harbor towns, villages really. There are a lot of sailboats bobbing around in the water. I stayed in Kinsale (I would highly recommend it as it is a good base for other parts of Cork and there is a lot to do there as well). But, getting in the car and driving the coast, heading west toward Baltimore is beautiful. You can hug the coast for a lot of the way, just taking in the views of the boats sitting peacefully on the water. Glandore makes a nice stop for something to eat or drink. But, get out to Baltimore and have a nice lunch. There are a few places to sit outside and have a bite or a pint and take in this view. Really, life doesn't get much better than that.
