St Brendan's Cove  -  I just can't resist rust these days. This rusty winch sits at the top of the concrete ramp at St. Brendan's Cove, on the north shore of the Dingle Peninsula.   From this tiny protected cove, St. Brendan sailed on his 6th century voyage of discovery to among other places (dare I say it?) North America.  There's a nice monument to St. Brendan, the Patron Saint of Mariners, at the top of the windy narrow road that winds down to the lonely little pier.
