A Day in the North: Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede, and beyond

The giant, Finn MacCool (how cool a name is that?), built
the causeway to Scotland, to do battle with a giant there,
or possibly to toss the Ring into Mt. Doom...

Fortunately, he built using these six-sided basaltic colums

Basaltic columns, up-close

Bushmills and the Causeway looked like Sturgis with all the
bike folk gathering for a big European road race

But nary a Harley in sight

stack at Carrick-a-Rede

The rope bridge

Coolest green tunnel so far, country road 5 km or so west of

We ended up camping at Rush, on Dublin Bay, in a hurricane;
note Martello tower in distance
