Happy Birthday Bruce ..celebrated by a ferry ride to Ireland!
We had a 2 hr crossing from Cairnryan to Larne taking our motorhomes with us. The narrow windy roads with hedges each side made it a slow pace but it was so worthwhile when we arrived on the northcoast.
Bruce, Matt, Olivia and Sam crossed the rope bridge at Carrick-a-rede while Kath and I chose not to spend 9 pound each to feel terrified!
The original rope bridge was built in 1755 by the Atlantic salmon fishermen to help them reach the small steep island
Matt and Kath went on to the Giant causeway while Bruce and I headed into Ballymoney to spend time with Iris and Roy McGavigan. Its 25 years since I had seen Iris. She was nursing in Australia for 2 years pre marriage and kids. Roy, Iris and boys Greg and Ryan and their gorgeous dog Shelley made us very welcome. Matt Kath and kids arrived with a cake for Bruce's birthday and we had a lovely night of music.
Monday morning we headed south again through the narrow roads with overhead canopies of trees. We stayed overnight at Lake Ennell.Read more
