Giants, Spooky Trees and Rope Bridges
Today was a day I was really looking forward to, visiting the famous Giant’s Causeway. We made a fairly early start to beat the hordes, parked and wandered to explore the basalt columns on the shore. It was stunning and awesome to clamber all around, and not too busy which was good.
From there, we made a short side trip to a road nicknamed The Dark Hedges, a road lined with nice spooky trees, one of the nearby Game of Thrones filming locations.
Next was a visit to Carrick-a-Rede, some tiny islands most notable for the rope bridge that you can use to hop on to the closest island. With delightful weather it was nice to cross the bridge and just hang out with the ocean breeze.
Our last stop was at the Portstewart Strand, a MASSIVE beach where you simple drive your car on to it and park! I’m not sure I have ever seen a beach so big. Also notable for being another Game of Thrones locale 😛
