Flag of United Kingdom  , N Ireland,
Wednesday, May 4, 2011

In case you got the impression from my previous blog that our visit to Belfast was only about its turbulent past, I thought I should also tell you that we enjoyed the busy and thriving city centre, the great places to eat, visiting the approximate site of the birthplace of C. S. Lewis and seeing the docks where the Titanic was built and the preparations for its centenary.

Once again we had glorious weather as we left Belfast and drove along the beautiful Irish coastline heading north. We hiked out to a place called Carrick-A-Rede, crossing a very high rope bridge connecting the peninsula where fisherman used to brave the elements to catch migrating salmon. The weather was great but the wind was really strong so the rope bridge rocked considerably. 

A bit further along the coast, we hiked down into and through what's known as the Giants Causeway - a pretty spectacular place, especially late in the afternoon as the sun was going down.

Navigating our way through the unusual and rather difficult-to-pronounce places names, we found our way our accommodation in Portrush and enjoyed a delicious meal in a quaint little seaside restaurant after our day of sight seeing. Ahhhh it's a tough life being on holidays.
