Today started out again with breakfast at the B&B in Dublin. Sam got the traditional Irish breakfast, while Matt enjoyed the poached eggs that Sam got the day before. After packing up and stuffing the rental car with the luggage, we set off for the costal highway. Second attempt at driving in Ireland went very well. Matt caught on quickly even when trying to keep his cool with the iPhone and map issues trying to get ourselves out ...
... more quickly than that. This tour is a definite highlight of our trip.
Ciaran explained something that we saw last night out the hotel room window. We watched as several boys, about 12 years old, lugged wooden pallets across the parking lots and sidewalks in front of the window. He said that they were probably paid to find them and bring them to the site of the next bonfire. The sects have huge bonfires ...
Sunday was another day of driving; this time along the gorgeous Northern Ireland Coastal Route which is a must-see route when in Northern Ireland. The roads weave along the coast of the Irish sea.

The pace seemed a bit quick and I was dropping off them by the end of the lap and sure enough ...
... after a wee taste, went to see the Giant's Causeway. Fantastic! Today was sunny and 10 degrees, a relief after 45 mph winds and high seas here yesterday. We just enjoyed an impromptu Irish dance by the daughter of the bnb owners, Catherine, and will try to add some pictures.
We're off to Londonderry to walk the city wall tomorrow.
Cheers for now,
