We get an early start to the next day to head to the amazing Cliffs of Moher. The pictures just can not do it justice. Utterly breathtaking, and if ever there was a time I wish Gary had been there with me it was now, because he loves a great view.
It was somewhat interesting that though incredibly impressive it reminded me so much of one of the 7 points on the Big Island of Hawaii that we visited last year. (When I was in Cape Town the beach also reminded me of Kona, and later on this day when we were driving through The Burren it looked like Kona with limestone instead of lava….maybe I am just channeling one of our favorite places in the world through other destinations.)
After jumping a fence to get a better view, despite the sign noting how many people have died doing the exact same thing, and taking in all the awe inspiring views we could we were off to our next stop. But before we left we promised to make it our personal mission to find a way to have the Cliffs of Moher included in the list of natural wonders in the world. It is on the nomination list, it just needs support. I can promise that its beauty is not something we will forget, and is a very deserving recipient if you care to vote here.
I had found a cave on our map that our helpful information girl at The Cliffs said was a must do. But first a stop along the water where huge waves were crashing into a rocky shore, yet a group of surfers were eagerly paddling out to catch the next wave.
