The Cliffs of Insanity

You could sum up today in few short words: it rained. Horizontally. Thankfully Katie and I spent the majority of the day on a bus going from Galway to the Cliffs of Moher to Limerick and finally Killarney.

Our tookuses are flat. And you are welcome for that mental image.

We had approximately 17 minutes to see the Cliffs of Moher before the next bus came. And I am pretty sure a hurricane was coming in as evident by our hair. Plus we were the only ones pulling our luggage with us as we trekked towards the edge. I am sure it was an awesome sight.

Exhibit A:

But the view made up for our for tornadic-like hair do's:

Exhibit B:

It really is an amazing sight!

We finally arrived into Killarney and made our way (in the rain) to our Bed & Breakfast. We were both hungry and tired and heard that Murphy's Pub at the end of the street was the place to go. And let me tell you, it was. They had a Guinness stew that has changed my life. And just as we were thinking of dessert, live music began to play in the front of the pub. It was everything you think an Irish pub should be. We are already planning on going tomorrow night too.

Speaking of which, tomorrow we are planning to rent bicycles and ride around the Killarney lakes. For those of you who know my bike-riding abilities means I may or may not be posting tomorrow. Just say a prayer for me tonight. Katie already told me she knows how to splint a leg and administer CPR.

That is reassuring.

Enjoy your Wednesday!
