the antrim coast

the purpose of our trip to ireland was to get a bit of nature before our city adventures in barcelona 
northern ireland was the perfect choice 
one of my favorite days was spent visiting the infamous rope-bridge and giant's cause way
all in one day! 
the drive along the antrim coast was a site in and of itself.  
it used to be one of the 7 wonders of the world - that country drive... 

we did a mile long walk along the bluffs to the rope-bridge  
i was a brave one and made it across and back - with trembling knees 
it was was a wild, shakey experience, but worth the view. 

the giant's causeway was quite the marvel
the 40,000 unique hexagonal basalt columns form steps that disappear out to the sea
there are a few variations of the old irish legend including giants, and dressing like babies, and conflict between ireland and scotland.
whatever the story, i appreciate a good tale
