We got up early this morning and headed north to Giant’s Causeway. It was beautiful and really cool. The rocks were all in hexagon shape, and the Giant Finn MacCool created them to make bridge to go over to Scotland to battle Benandonner, a rival giant. We walked up a goats trail along the edge of the cliff around the end of the inlet to see some awesomeness of God’s creation. We were given a great introduction to Ireland weather, it was rainy, cold, and the wind was blowing like crazy. But it was worth the trip.
We left the Causeway and went to Dunluce Castle. The ruins of it anyway. It was really cool, the MacDonald’s (MacDonnell’s) owned/operated the castle. You could tell the set up of the rooms, and it was a large set-up. Riley and Tara walked down the steps to see the sea cave that was under the castle — where they hid their get-a-way boat. Me and Seneatha and the girls opted to go to the car. We left there and headed home.
It was some awesome country that we saw today…well actually all week. Ireland is a beautiful country.
Here’s my pictures…hope you enjoy them. Ireland ’09
