Trip to Ireland: Day 11

This was one of my very favorite days in Ireland!!!!
 Of course that means that I saw more lighthouses  :  )
 This is the town of Carnlough, which we visited on our scenic trip to see the Giant's Causeway.
 How is this place this beautiful?

 Our next stop was a scenic view of the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.

 Our last stop before our destination for the day, is Dunluce Castle.  Apparently this castle is falling off the cliff, as in the kitchen has already fallen off.  Pretty cool. 
 The following pictures need no commentary, this was one of the most amazing places that I have ever visited.  And the slipperiest.  

 This is volcanic rock, which broke into this formation naturally.

Last picture of the day, and I love it.  
Love Always,

Trip to Ireland: Day 10

I was extremely excited to see the Titanic museum in Belfast. 

 Posting this picture breaks my, "no posting pictures that I take from a moving bus," rule, but I had to add a picture of this C.S. Lewis statue.  

 This is the Albert Memorial Clock, which is absolutely leaning four feet.  That being said any pictures that I took either looked too tilted, or I over compensated for the lean.  So these are the results.  :  /  Pretty cool though. 
Love Always,

Trip to Ireland: Day 9

We started the day with a walking tour through Derry, the walled city.

 Then we made our way to the Ulster American Folk Park.  
I had to snap a picture of this, we had a lovely lunch in this building, but I must say that it was rather un-nerving walking through the locked fence, hahahah. 
 The folk park shows the homes that were used in historic Ireland.   
 Ummm, I am pretty sure that this would have been ever many years ago.

 Yet another set of fluffy animals, my favorite part if my trip...
 cute, doe-eyed animals  :  )

 In the historic church, I found the least confidential confession booth ever.

And the trip ended in "America".  This trip reminded me of Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.  I was quite silly in hoping that I would see thatched roof houses as I wandered the irish country side, thankfully I got to see a few in this folk park.  
Love Always,
