Giant's Causeway

The Giant's Causeway in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, is one of those places that you hear about and is hyped up- "wonder of the world" and all that. In many cases I have found these sorts of places disappointing; this one however did not disappoint. The weather may have had something to do with it: nasty, wet, and cold, which meant wild and magnificent seas and very few people scrambling about on the rocks, despite the presence of a paved road and shuttle bus providing access to the place (I walked of course).

The way down the coastline to the Causeway.

Looking across a little inlet at the main section of the Causeway.

It was a little windy: good Irish horizontal rain; one could lean over the edge of the rocks and the wind hold him up. I couldn't feel my fingers, also. Very invigorating!

The coastal cliffs seen from the path that climbs up from the Causeway. The yellow stuff in the foreground is gorse, or furze, which blooms more or less year round.
