The Cliffs of Moher

This rainy day started with a great breakfast at my hotel. I skipped the blood sausage and went for a safer menu of Eggs, Sausage and Bacon, and of course a pot of coffee! Thank you God for the pot of coffee - since it is Mother's Day and I'm missing my girls-- they always serve me Breakfast on a tray with a pot of coffee on Mother's Day !!! I love how God knows these things and always gives me what I need!!

I decided to take a bus tour to the Cliffs of Moher today -- it's an all day tour through the Burren limestone landscape, stopping at Dunguaire Castle, Gleninsheen Wedge Tomb, Poulnabrone Dolmen, Kilfenora Cathedral and Dollin Village.

First Stop - Dunguaire Castle The rain had stopped and sun did come out!!!

This is the most photographed Castle in Ireland - and I can see why -- Can't believe I actually got to touch it!! We had only 15 minutes to tour this small castle and take pictures - -- EEEKK!! I was the last one to return to the bus ... not sure if this tour bus life is for me!! But I did notice that once again I had deep peace and that silly little smile I found in Italy followed me to the Irish countryside!

Lunch was in Doolin Village - so was a quick shopping moment! We ate at O'Connor's Pub-of course I had the Irish Stew! The sun continued to follow us, and I am told that it could take many trips to the cliff before you can actually see them. Today was one of the rare occasions that the rain held out and the sun was shining!! What a nice Mother's Day gift from God!!
