Cliffs of Moher

Before we dropped the golfers off at Lahinch on Thursday our entire group took a trip to the dramatic Cliffs of Moher. The gray day leant an air of melancholy to the visit and the winds blew cold and fierce. More than once I thought my phone would be blown from my hands as I snapped photos.

This picture is of the left side of the cliff walk. I only walked up the right side.

Studly Doright only ventured as far as the visitors’ center, above, so I explored without him.

I didn’t really gain weight on the trip, but my multiple layers made it look like I’d added at least a stone (aka 14 lbs.)

Our bus driver, Paul, said the Cliffs of Moher had seen more than its share of jumpers through the years. Often the only clue that a suicide occurred was an unclaimed car in the parking area at day’s end. On a brighter note, the Cliffs are also a favorite place for marriage proposals. I just watched for dragons.

Peace, people.

    1. It is a beautiful place. I’m hoping one of the better photographers in our group will post some on Facebook for me to steal. Sometimes an iPhone camera just doesn’t have what it takes.

      1. Noted, but you still got gorgeous shots. Though I often think no photo, no matter how skilled or how good the equipment, can capture the true beauty of nature. Part of the beauty is being in the physical place. But I’m getting too deep for the morning, so I have to snap back into shallow….

  1. This is so so beautiful, and you have some lovely pictures to document your trip. It looks like the kind of place that is right on the edge of the world, with stunning beauty to cool the eyes and winds strong enough to blow away the cobwebs of the mind! I would like to visit a place like this, cliffs are so dreadfully fascinating. It’s sad that there have been many jumpers from those cliffs, but I suppose there is always some sadness within happiness.

      1. Lol! Reminds me of the old joke about the elderly Texas rancher who, when a tourist told him it looked like they might be in for a rainstorm, said, “I sure hope so. Not for myself, but for my 40 year old son. After all, I’ve seen rain.”
