This is a personal dialog/biography of one man's views as he circumnavigates Ireland by kayak. There are roughly 4 general maps of coastal sections, with each section covered through chapters related to the coastal setting. The setting involves the coastline geography and how it affects tides and shore access in combination with winds and tide levels. There is discussion of the historical significance of ruins and the population characteristics of those who dwelt in the area over time.
