Cliffs of Moher (video)

Cliffs of Moher

Warning!  Do not enter!  Closed due to hazardous weather conditions.

That was the sign posted all around the entrance to the Cliffs of Moher, but when you are in Ireland and have driven for 1.5 hours to see the cliffs, you GO!  We pulled in to park the car and the winds were so strong the car was almost being lifted up, but other people were walking up to the massive cliffs, so we figured we should all go for it!

The Cliffs of Moher range from 300 to 700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean on the coast of Ireland and are one of the top destinations in Ireland.  We love seeing natural beauty, so we risked our lives to see the dramatic site.  We were told the winds were 60 miles per hour, just shy of a category 1 hurricane.  We took a video, where I was sitting down on the steps, holding the ipod with both hands, with my elbows anchored in to my body and I could hardly hold the iPod steady enough to tape Jon being held up by the winds.  It was a bit crazy!  Here is the video:

By the way, the Cliffs have also made quite a few movies.  Most notably, The Princess Bride, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Leap Year.
