On to Northern Ireland, and straight up to the North Coast. Here we found the Giant’s Causeway, a destroyed bridge built by giant Finn McCool to walk to Scotland. (or if you prefer scientific explanations, it came from volcanoes).
We also crossed the exhilarating Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge over a 23m-deep and 20m-wide chasm. Since I was taking the photos, there are none of me, but I did cross – and I came back too, but that is the only way off the island.
And while on the Causeway Coast we visited the medieval Dunluce Castle.
All photos on this page © Rhonda Albom 2012 – Photos actually taken last week, as this blog is one week behind. We are off on a cruise for the next nine days. The blog posts are pre-scheduled and will continue, but I will not have access to respond to comments until we disembark – but I love comments, so keep them coming!
Travel Counter: We are in the third month of our 250 day overseas adventure. The blog is currently about a week behind.
