Here There Be Giants!

After two days of totally inadequate pictorial souvenirs came October 3, 2012. With my battery freshly charged I again got into the car with Alison and she drove us north this time, and along the coast for the most part.
We stopped from time to time in towns and villages and walked around to see the local sights.

We stopped for lunch and had some more lovely wheaten bread with soup and salad.
The weather was glorious and we had views of such varied landscapes; grassy hillsides and rocky beaches.

Blue skies and shifting cloud formations greeted us at every twist and turn of the coastal route.
In the afternoon we came to Giant's Causeway. In ancient times lava floes were extruded into fantastic hexagonal columns that marched into the sea. This area is now a tourist attraction with all sorts of fables and legends about giants crossing the sea on the path.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         There was enough natural beauty left to really enjoy a walk along the rocky beach...  

 and a climb up the steps to the top of the cliff.

What  beautiful day.
