Day 10- It's my blog day, We're doing what I want

Good Evening Lads and Lassies,

Today we parted from our elegant stay in Limerick for many interesting adventures that began our journey in Galway. The first bus ride, Limerick to Lehinch Beach, Jayla had already decided to catch some flies.

As we arrived at the beach, we soon realized we were in for a treat. It was very windy and wet, not our ideal beach scene in the States, that's for sure. We only stayed for about 20 minutes for some awesome photo ops (as always) and we headed out. During this 20 mins, Jaclyn and I decided it was a good idea to take our shoes off and go in the water. Our feet were pretty close to falling off I think! 

From here we visited the Cliffs of Moher. The Cliffs were obviously beautiful as I'm sure you've seen in photos, but it was a different type of beautiful today. We had to try and see them through the fog and rain!
We walked on the Cliffs for about 45 mins which was awesome. A couple of us even got right up on the edge! We came back completely drenched from head to toe, so we all had to change our clothes before lunch.
We also visited the exhibit, which happened to be indoors, thankfully. Here we learned about "Life at the Edge," which explained the many types of marine life, wildlife, and plants that there is a wide array of at the Cliffs. We saw explanations of how Earth and the Cliffs have evolved over time from 4.6 million years ago to present day. It also showed why the climate is always rainy and cold here and how it is changing. In the exhibit, we saw that by 1978, 100,000 people were visiting the Cliffs each year and in the next ten years it was expected to increase to 250,000. Most of the architecture and pathways along the Cliffs was built by Sir Cornelius O'Brien who was the landlord of the property in the mid 1800's. 

From here we took off to Galway (YAY), and on the bus ride we learned that Jaclyn must have been reincarnated from an Irish whistler of some sort in another life and that she plays glorious Irish tunes (not really). The bus driver took us on the scenic route which was a road that followed the west coast of Ireland from one city to another. On this route, we decided to stop for yet another group photo (go figure) on the side of the road where we could see the ocean crashing against the rocks. After the picture, we all hid from the weather on the bus while Jaclyn and Marlee spent 15 mins taking selfies by the ocean, meeting a snail friend, and getting completely soaked again, who needs a shower?

FINALLY, we arrived in Galway after a long bus rude of Jaclyn's awful whistling and getting stuck in the worst traffic we've seen in Ireland thus far. After we all showered and got cleaned up, we went to Rockin Joes for a nice greasy dinner before we went to see, yep you guessed it, Pitch Perfect 2! I know what you're thinking, "Accascuse me?"... Well, accabelieve it. We had an accaawesome time. The pitch was defintely perfect for us here across the pond. #squad

That's all folks! See ya in 4 days!
