Beautiful, But A Little Scary

This is one of the most breathtaking views that I saw in Ireland. I mean, that it is breath taking because it is beautiful, but also because it is a bit scary being up on the cliffs with the wind blowing.

View From A Distance: The Cliffs

This was a beautiful view of the cliffs, one that you will find on a lot of internet sites. I think you can walk all the way to the end, but we only walked a short distance up the hill. I gained more courage as I walked even going somewhat close to the side, but I was still very very careful.

Probably Not A Good Idea

Before I went to the cliffs, I heard the scary stories---a boy was blown off while talking to his mother on his cell phone. There are others, as well. Since I was going with my son, that's the the story that left an impression with me.

There are strong gusts of wind that suddenly come up, so if you do go out on the ledge, it is probably not a good idea to stand, but rather to inch your way out lying down on your stomach, as I saw some people doing.

The bottom line is: Be very careful, and don't do anything stupid.
