yesterday i saw more beauty than one person should ever be portioned. together our big api group of 40 students went and saw several sites in east co. clare. looking over cliffs edges, touching ancient stone, and ducking through old caves made me happier than i can describe.
now, i don’t think that photos can even begin to do these sites justice, but just for you i’m going to try. and as i had to wait on the bus in suspense between visits, i’m going to break up my day of excursions as well throughout a few posts.
we met our bus driver at 10am on saturday morning. we were all bright eyed and so excited to see a bit more of ireland on an especially sunny day. our first stop was quick. we stopped at dunguaire, a 16th century castle.
i was absolutely itching with excitement to see the cliffs of moher. but i was pleasantly distracted with the beauty of this castle and its surrounding green, green scenery. after taking a bundle of photos, we all piled back on the bus and headed towards the cliffs.
on the way there, paul pulled over and told us to appreciate a few smaller cliffs with no boundaries, no tourist information. just us and the cliffs. and i am so glad he did.
and once again, we hopped back on the bus and headed to the cliffs of moher. even looking at the photos, i swear i lose my breath a bit. the day was beautiful. and if i could have it my way, i’d take a pillow and a blanket and live out at the cliffs. but, i think you’re just going to have to wait to see these photos. i promise, it’ll be worth it.
if you’re lucky enough to visit east co. clare, ireland, you’re lucky enough
