Friday 13th July
The car park stopover at Inagh as mentioned in my last post ysterday.
Then as it got dark we had an eerie light shining into the Beast. Ian went out to investigate and lo and behold..could that be Jesus?.
It was back on the Atlantic Way this morning. We passed the Cliffs of Moher (payment was required to view the Cliffs so we didn't stop!) and headed for Doolen Cave.
This cave holds one of the largest stalactites that can be viewed in the world. The discovery was made by two Brits J. M. Dickenson and Brian Varley. Read about the discovery here
What an impressive sight. Although the normal stalactites and stalagmites found in caves are almost non-existent in this one, the sheer size of the monster made the fee all worthwhile.

Following the Atlantic Way and we came across a Geological wonder. I have found too much about it on the web but it could be called the Burren Exposure. The rock formations give the impression of an ancient lava flow but this is a pure guess.
The birds of prey demonstration was very impressive though.
And a few more wildlife photos
