The Tale of Irish Summer July 24, 2012

I don’t know if they were in a serious tussle for dominance or was it just a friendly hide and seek.

I witnessed myself how the sun was trying to sneak through the big lumpy clouds on a sombre summer day in Ireland.

It was a wonderful sight as the rays sieved through the clouds and fell on Atlantic Ocean on a shore near Co. Clare.

The affair did not last long as the sun had to succumb to the ruthless clouds.

It was escorted by them all the way through into the darkness of west with a challenge to get ready for a new contest on a new day.

Will it be a different story tomorrow?

Fingers Crossed!

Cliffs of Moher July 18, 2012

We got a chance visiting Cliffs of Moher last Sunday. The maximum height is said to be 214 m at the highest point and cliffs run for approximately 8 kilometres. We never thought they were so mesmerising until we started walking on the track on top of them. They present an exciting view of Atlantic Ocean and you come across with wonderful birds as you walk further.

It was a little windy but nevertheless quite pleasant. And by Irish standards, it is good if it is not raining.

We walked all the way through, taking pictures in the middle and viewing the cliffs from different angles and it took us around 3 hours to reach the final point. On our way back we just rushed as we were starving and all our food was in our car. We never anticipated it would take 3 hours one side. It is a good idea to carry a couple of good fruits such as bananas or either chocolates to refuel your energy.
