Northern Ireland

Today we had our first of two days of car-and-driver tours of Northern Ireland. First, the political murals and neighborhoods of Belfast, and then a variety of sites on the Antrim Coast in the north. The weather was unusually sunny and pleasant, though the winds on the coast were chilly.

This is just a sampling of the photos from these places that will eventually appear on this blog.

Carrick-a-Rede, site of a famous rope bridge, strung by fishermen, that we didn't walk across.

Ballintoy Harbor

St. Gobban's Church, according to our guide the smallest church in Ireland.

Giant's Causeway: a small sample of its remarkable hexagonal basal columns.

Dunluce Castle
