Edge of the cliff

Edge of the cliff  (40 of 40)

The wind at the Cliffs of Moher -- which are about 700 feet high -- was unbelievably strong but these folks felt the need to crawl right out to the edge to look over. There were even people with their young kids out there...I'm amazed the little blighters didn't just blow right off the edge and into the pounding surf below. I guess I know for sure now that I'm afraid of heights...my stomach is turning just looking at this photo.
