Ireland Day 3
We decided to do some land exploring and found a place for spelunking. Doolin Cave is home to the largest stalactite in the world. The stalactite was discovered by two British cavers who found a small hole behind a waterfall that they literally crawled through on their stomachs for about a 1/4 mile. They would have had to crawl out of the hole backwards to get out. Yikes! Thank goodness they have installed over 100 stairs for us to climb down into the cave. While exhausting to climb back up they are much more practical to get in.
The stalactite reminds me of a white cape hanging on a coat rack. It's so amazing what nature can create.
Time to go back to the Cliffs of Moher to take an ocean view look of the cliffs. Or as I like to think of it, the dolphins view. Maybe a mermaids.
