    Favorite thing: There was a talking telescope where I was attempting to take photos of the puffins. Some people came by and put money in (I didn't have any coins with me) and let me look through it at the puffins. I found that my photographs were about the same magnification as the telescope.

    Favorite thing: Lighthouses are one of my favorite things, and I was able to photograph one when I was at the Cliffs of Moher. I believe that this one was Inisheer which is actually one of the Aran Islands Lighthouses. The Aran Islands, located in the mouth of Galway Bay, But I photographed the lighthouse from County Clare.

    Fondest memory: This lighthouse was built originally in 1857 and is active. A red light is shown over rocks to the east. It consists of a 112 ft round white masonry tower with lantern and gallery, with a single broad horizontal black band. There are two keeper's houses enclosed by a stone wall. Inisheer is accessible by passenger ferry from Doolin, and the lighthouse is accessible by hiking trail. Located on the southeastern point of the island.

    Sunset on the Cliffs of Moher

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of County Clare is sitting on the Cliffs of Moher one nice May evening and watch the sun set over the Aran Islands. There were very few people there, and most of those just sat quietly in the grass until the sun had disappeared. The atmosphere was very peaceful and magical.
