On our itinerary today was a visit to the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland's great natural thrills. We raced against the weather to get to the Cliffs before the rains came down! We musta had a bit o' luck o' the Irish on our side for reasons two-fold: 1) we saw a rainbow!
Our family at the Cliffs of Moher on Monday, September 21st 2015.
O'Brien's tower stands on the highest point of the cliffs and was built in 1835.
The "civilized" part of the cliffs with the paved walkways and nice wall only extends a couple of hundred yards in each direction from the visitor's center. After that, it is much like it used to be with dirt paths along the edge and nothing to keep you from falling. Chris decided to run out along the path a way so I could get a picture of him. I'm glad he didn't slip and plunge to his death. He claims there was a nice path a good ways back from the edge, but I still worry!
Same photo zoomed in. That's Chris! Epic.
