We were in Miltown Malbay for the Willie Clancy. In the afternoons, we went walking. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera, but I did have my mobile, so couldn't resist a few scenes.
The first is this view of the Cliffs of Moher looking south, but for all the world, it looks like a ledge hanging precariously high above the ocean.
Not far from Miltown, there is the beautifully maintained holy well in honour of St Joseph. As regular visitors here will know, I have a fascination for holy wells; places that have a special other-worldly atmosphere about them. I hope more people come to visit them, so that they may survive.
Every time I come to Clare, I want to walk in the Burren. Bloody Cranes-bill filled the grykes.
But you have to marvel at nature's resilience, here's a small nest of plants surviving in spite of everything.
I was reminded yet again, something music-lovers have always known, Clare is a very special place.
