Cliffs of Moher…and more…

Where Ireland meets the Atlantic

Standing 200 meters above, frantic

I took an inhale

Kept one eye on the trail

Because falling would not be romantic

  On Sunday, Joe and I took the Paddywagon on a tour through the Burren region in County Clare-which is just an hour west of Limerick.  We stopped first at a portal tomb known as Poulnabrone Dolmen, which dates back to 4200 B.C. It reminded me more of a giant massage table than a tomb.  Maybe the ancient Neolithic people had more than one use for them.  The landscape is covered with limestone and many different types of plants and wildflowers-which makes the region a main attraction.  It was fun taking pictures there and limestone-hopping too.  Next stop-Doolin.  A small fishing village that is known as the capital of Irish traditional music, it’s where many well-known Irish musicians got their name. Too bad our bus driver gave us only 45 minutes here-we ran to O’Connors pub for some stuffed roast chicken with sweet potatoes and a Murphy’s stout, took in as much of the town as possible (the sweater shop, etc)  and were off for the famous Cliffs of Moher. Now I love writing, but words would never do those magnificent cliffs justice.  So, here are some photos-enjoy!
