We are in Doolin again today. In case anyone was sitting at the edge of their seat to find out what happened, it's safe to say that Tyler did indeed pay for his little whisky tasting fiasco this morning at about 5am. Also, I do indeed have lots of bruising from the shotgun! We went from eating breakfast at a castle yesterday to this morning having our own kitchen but no groceries. We scrounged together a breakfast of squished granola bars and bananas from our bags. We took a walk into the Main Street of Doolin. The Main Street has about 5 shops but during the walk you can hear sheep baa-ing, see cows nearby grazing and a donkey just hanging around. I'm not making it out to seem very good but it really is very quaint and really feels like we are living like Irish countrymen! We picked up some lunch for later on and made our way to the pier. Today is our Cliffs of Moher day. I'm sure you've seen pictures of it. You will recognize it when you see it. We jumped on a ferry to see the cliffs from the sea first. The weather was good and everything but both Tyler and I agreed that it was hard to get perspective on how big the cliffs are from the bottom of them. They sort of just looked like cliffs. We then walked back to our apartment and drove to the top of the cliffs. They are 8km tall and have many different peaks. They have over a million visitors a year and so there are nicely made paths and walkways. It was sunny today so the water beneath seemed to be glistening in the light. Things fell apart a little bit with Bennett with this one and I think our late night out last night really caused some serious whines this afternoon. Tyler called the cliffs the "cliffs of whines". We played a bit in a playground and as a side note many playground here have zip lines which is fun! We had an early dinner and made sure the kids were asleep earlier today.
As an update, we have tried a few more Irish dishes. We had cabbage and bacon which is sort of like back bacon with steamed cabbage topped with a bechamel sauce. I thought it was pretty good., Tyler not so mucus. We've had seafood chowder and smoke salmon which were yummy and fish and chips which were just ok. The worst thing we have had so far has been black pudding which is a blood sausage made with animal blood and fat...so gross.
