    Causeway Coast day 44 Tue 5 Jun 2018

    June 5 in the United Kingdom

    Breakfast at 8am then drove towards Portballintrae stopping to photograph the Dunluce Castle ruin as well as releasing a trapped bird inside a rubbish bin. Parked the car above Runkerry Beach and commenced walking Section 3 of the Causeway Coast Way to the Giant’s Causeway visitor centre crossing the Bush River as well as the Bushmills railway tracks on the way. We also passed Runkerry House built in the early 1860’ies. Watched a large pod of dolphins swim along the coast from the cliffs. Also photographed an Oyster Catcher bird. Walked down the road with masses of people and photographed the famous tessellated area. What the tourist information does not say is that the cliffs beyond the tourist area also contain bands of hexagonal basalt columns. The coastal scenery in this area is outstanding. We walked Section 4 of the Causeway Coastal Way to the ruin of Dunseverick Castle the back to the car, twenty seven kilometres in total. Dinner in Portballintrae. Steak two nights in a row.Read more

    To Belfast day 45 Wed 6 Jun 2018

    June 6 in the United Kingdom

    Breakfast then left Aaranmore B & B and drove to Ballintoy Harbour which was far more scenic than I expected. After taking many photos drove on to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. We directed to a car park in a old limestone quarry. While Yvonne visited Carrick-a-Rede island via the rope bridge I explored the old limestone workings roads and some sea caves nearby. Took photos of the nearby Sheep Island as well as Carrick-a-Rede. Drove to Fair Head and walked a twelve kilometre marked route. There were hexagonal basalt columns in parts of the vertical cliffs and most of the people there were rock climbers. There were views to the Rathlin Island which was partly obscured by mist. We passed the Lough-na-Cranagh with a stone wall surrounding the edge of a small island built possibly in the Iron Age, possibly Early Christian. Back at the Fair Head car park had a pleasant conversation with the farmer who owned the land. The farm is 400 acres and carries 500 sheep for meat and about 50 cattle. Followed the scenic coastal route to Carrickfergus and took photos of the Castle and harbour. Ate steak and chips in a local hotel before driving to Belfast. The GPS took us to the end of the street where our accomodation was located but there was no street sign. Having located the terrace house there was no answer on the phone number supplied by Booking.com. Another number on the door directed us to another terrace house a block away also without off street parking that was in the process of being renovated around the paying guests. There was no toilet paper or hot water and the front and back doors of the unattended property could not be locked. Fortunately the owner responded to our calls and turned up with toilet paper and turned on the hot water about 10pm.Read more

    Portrush East Strand

    September 25, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Bereits fürs nächste Wochenende planten Nancy und ich einen Ausflug.
    Einfach los auf eigene Faust mit dem Zug. Die Temperatur des Wassers testen und den Strand angucken, an dem wir surfen gehen wollten.
    Zu erst die kleine Stadt besichtigen und dann erstmal Pizza zur Stärkung, bevor es an den über 5 km langen Stand ging.

    Irisches Wetter

    September 25, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Durch Sonne, Regen und Regenbogen ging es dann den ganzen Strand entlang und zurück.
    Muscheln und Steine sammeln, Dünen lachend hoch und runter rennen und einfach das Rauschen des Meeres genießen. Mit nassen Füßen aber guter Laune ging es dann zurück nach Derry.
