Reflections on the Emerald Isle, part 6 On the road to Galway

We got up bright and early the night after our time at McGann's Pub and headed toward Galway.  First stop was Doolin Pier.








The sun was brightly shining and waves were crashing.  I don't know why the sun and waves were so unexpected to me, but the surprise of it made the stop all more lovely.




Next stop---the Cliffs of Moher.  As I stated before, the Cliffs are amazing.  Massive, beautiful, breathtaking, awe-inspiring.  It is truly necessary to just let the pictures do the talking.

















"In memory of those who have lost their lives at the Cliffs of Moher"


Leaving the Cliffs, we headed across The Burren, an archeological and geographical wonder.  Jim, being the former geologist, found this to be a special treat.  Truth be told, we all found it fascinating.  Tami is a Social Studies teacher, so the history of it intrigued her.  Jeff and I just thought it was all wonderful.  Sadly, I realize we didn't take enough pictures at this stop.







On to Galway!

LOL...When I first read the words under the pic of you and the "Cliffs of Moher", I read it as the Cliffs of Mother. Wow. Yes, let's pause a moment and say a prayer for all those poor souls who lost their lives at the cliffs of mother!
