I'm Back with Photos

The past week has been a whirlwind of activity.  It involved a trip across the pond, a tiny rental car, and adventure in many forms.  

Seeing as we live in a very small town, a two hour trip is what it takes to get to an adequate airport.  Two flights, and many hours of air travel later, and we arrived in Shannon, Ireland.  

Our first order of business was the Cliffs of Moher.  


Even when you have seen photos of a spectacular land form, it doesn't really prepare you for the real thing.  


Aran Islands in the distance.  

We were very fortunate to have some time that our family of four was able to go together.  As our children have continued forward in their own lives, schedules have gotten complicated.  


With the time difference we were up early before crowds and tour buses arrived.  


The views were stunning from every point.  


Ireland was in the middle of a heat wave during our visit.  Although, the hottest day we were there was 78 degrees Fahrenheit.  Not too hot for us, as we returned home to temps in the mid 90's.  

O'Brien's Tower 

We spent about three hours walking the trails along the cliffs.  


Tour buses were filling the lot upon our departure and it was time for a good pub lunch.  

More photos to come in the following days.

  4. Oh how I'd love to go there. If I could, I would spend the summer traveling around GB. Last time I went, we didn't get out of London.

  7. Glad to hear that you had a wonderful visit. It is still hot here but not like Kentucky and there is a hose ban until the end of the month. Have to use a watering can to water plants and gardens. Enjoyed seeing your photos!

  9. Ireland is a beautiful country. We went there about 10 years ago on a walking vacation and
    walked the Ring of Kerry. One of my all time favorite vacations.
