The Burren of County Clare is a most unique and wonderful place. This area was once upon a time the ocean floor and is now a region of limestone mountains, ancient castles, and Abbeys and churches, and the awesome Cliffs of Moher.
As this tour progresses and while i am teaching Terry and DiAnn a little about Ireland, Terry is teaching me how to use my new smart phone, not an easy job for him, but i would have to admit that he does know his stuff. DiAnn also chips in, and she is no slouch either, so by the end of this week i expect that i will be giving lessons myself. Miracles do happen, especially in Ireland.
Speaking of miracles, we visited St Bridgets well near the Cliffs today also. This is a very special place, and many people come here to pray for their special intentions, for people who are sick or even dead, and for their own personal problems, so if you are in the area make sure you visit here. It is very near the Cliffs and just on the side of the road on the Liscannor side of the entrance to the Cliffs.St Bridget is the Patroness of Ireland and many people have a great regard for her.
We crossed the Shannon river estuary later on our way to Killarney where we will be for the next three nights in the Killarney Plaza Hotel. I love this place and its location is second to none in the town and close to everything. Everything about the Plaza is good.

Terry and DiAnn on board the ferry as we began our journey across the mighty Shannon River estuary.
What a lovely happy couple they are.
Terry had to get a picture of a typical Irish thatched cottage.
All smiles again as we walked the cliffs today.
At the top of the cliffs with the Aran Islands in the background. Note how small the ferry boats look in the ocean below. They are decent sized boats, but from this height they look tiny.
These ferries bring people on cruises under the cliffs and do provide different exciting views from below. Best if you can enjoy both experiences....the Cliffs are a must.
