The Cliffs of Moher on a Very Foggy Day

The Cliffs of Moher
County Clare, Ireland

We were so fortunate to be able to return to the Cliffs of Moher a second time in completely different weather conditions. 
This time it was VERY windy and VERY foggy.
In fact, it was so windy that we stayed away from the cliffs’ edge to keep from getting blown over!
These conditions are, actually, more like a typical day here. 

The green shines through the fog!

Wild flowering plants peek over the limestone walls.

We can barely see the ocean through the fog. 

These steep cliffs are perched 600 feet above the churning Atlantic Ocean. They are bordered by an extensive cliff-top trail that offers majestic and breathtaking coastal views.

It’s beautiful with or without extreme weather!

Our friend, Sally, is trying to stand still in the wind. 
Where has her hair gone?

The wind gusts are strong!
That’s me hanging on!

You can climb to the top of the O’Brian Tower for a fee of a few Euros.
 But, it was closed at this time since there wasn’t much of a view.

There’s an ocean out there...really!
The Wild Atlantic Way is appropriately named!

Just love the limestone rock walls.

A Foggy Foggy Day!

A lot of walking can be done in this area!
We had a very nice time but hope to do much more walking another time.

The trail along the cliffs’ edge gets very narrow so
be smart and save that walking for a calmer day.
