The View is Excellent--Cliffs of Moher, County Clare Ireland

The rain and fog enveloped the countryside as we wound our way up in elevation toward our destination--the Cliffs of Moher. As we pulled up to the ticket counter in our rented Ford Focus, we asked how's the visibility? "Excellent!" responded the ticket attendant. We paid her our admission and made our way to the cliff edge, the windy rain blowing into our faces. She must have thought we were a trio of suckers, because the view was far from 'Excellent!' The Fog engulfed the cliff face and the only definition seen was the crashing waves below. Accepting our losses (the fact that we had just driven cross country for this view and had been swindled out of 18 euro), we regretfully turned around and walked back to our car.
