Kilkee and it’s amazing cliffs

You have to forgive me for writing now about something in June. There are two reasons for this: one,that I have started writing this blog only recently and,two, Debashish takes a lot of time uploading /downloading his photographs. Once a picture gets taken- it enters the deep crevices of his camera and computer and sort of remains hidden for months unless coaxed out ! These could get coaxed out only now and are probably worth sharing!

The magnificent cliffs near Kilkee

In June, Debashish had to attend a function in Kilkee, a village in county Clare, Ireland . Aaditya ,our son who was visiting, and I took the chance to accompany him to see a bit of Ireland. We tagged along and look what we found!

Kilkee is situated on a little finger of land on the western coast, on the Atlantic ocean.
We followed directions of a ‘scenic drive’ and were stunned by the beauty of the Irish coast. You see, we had visited the iconic Cliffs of Moher earlier in the year . They are ,well, iconic,but had left us not too impressed not least because of all its tourist trappings.  But here, in Clare, I think,  is beauty worth recording.The intense green that covers the tops of the cliffs remains unblemished by any salty air and little clusters of pink flowers bloom in profusion. They are called, as far as I can make out, ‘sea campions’. And the cliffs rising high out of the sea are magnificent.

The intense green and dramatic skies along the cliffs

Kilkee remains close to my heart on account of another reason. I will write about it in a few days.
See you soon !
