hi folks, i've seen it both ways -- clockwise and counter (anti) clockwise. if you have to drive on left side of road, you'd have unobstructed views to water (over your passenger's head!) if you go clockwise -- yes? i recall something about busses, which i think suggested counterclockwise -- yes? any tips on best direction? too, are there better days/times of day than others to drive the ring so as to minimize traffic as much as might be possible but still see things (so no night drives!)? thanks much.
