Top of the Morning -

Giant's Causeway. This was a volcanic tube that cooled off and crystallized and now they are basalt columns.If you climb on top of them you can get a better view.
Yes I walked up this. I noticed neither children or middle aged people on the very steep trail (well, perhaps with one exception). There was possible a sheep or a goat or two.The view from the top was worth it.
Wimps - go ahead and take the tour bus back. :-)

  8. You passed by my town on the way to the causeway then. Not much to see here...

    Glad you enjoyed out most famous landmark. An Ulster fry should be on your agenda. Bigger and better than a full english breakfast!
