Keely was first up and out the door (into the cold) to make a snowman. About half of the snow had melted or turned to ice but she still clumped together some snow, stuck in cherry tomatoes for the eyes and a carrot piece for the nose. Of course she named it 'Olaf' after the snowman from the Disney movie Frozen. We had a nice self-made breakfast and then loaded Reddy Eddie to go to the Giants Causeway.

We had an hour to hang out on the beach. It was so peaceful and pretty. After this we went on ...
... right in the middle of the city, pretty neat. The castle had been burned to the ground as one point instead of surrendering it in war, so some of it has been rebuilt in restoration.
