We had a free morning in Dingle to wander around and check out the town, do a little shopping, and visit the local farmers' market.

We did a lot of driving that day - from Dingle through Tralee to Tarbert, where we took a ferry across the River Shannon to Kilrush. But it was a beautiful day and the sun was shining, and I didn't have a care in the world. I just sat back, relaxed, and enjoyed being chauffeured around and watching the gorgeous scenery go by.
For years and years, I have longed to see the famous Cliffs of Moher, and this was the day my wish came true! We were giddy with anticipation as we walked up to the edge and saw this jaw-dropping scene ...

This is the highest cliff, at 700 feet!

There are warning signs like this all over the place ...
but stupid American college kids still insist on doing this ...

The "green" visitors' center is built into the hillside, so it doesn't spoil the area around the cliffs.

Tomorrow it's on to County Galway and Connemara.
