Viking Invasion of Ireland – Days 3 & 4

I’m too tired to blog!   After travelling to Belfast yesterday and then up the North Antrim Coast today, I’m spent!  As you will see, the scenery is beautiful.  If I had more time, I’d rent a little cottage by the sea and write for the next week and take more pictures. 

The people in Northern Ireland have been lovely as well – like nowhere else I’ve been in the world.  I’ll have to commit to writing more later, but for now I will let the pictures tell the story.  Enjoy!

    1. Thanks, Martina! I didn’t get as carried away as I thought I would with the photography. Sometimes I find I live behind the lens too much, so there were times when I just put the camera down and took in the scenery.

    1. Thanks, Lisa. I’d imagine as a scientist, you’d be very fascinated with some of the stuff I found in the north of Ireland. Those rock formations were quite interesting – have never seen anything like it.

    1. Thank you, Mike. If you do go, I’d recommend the fall. Spring was nice, but in late September and early October all the leaves are still very colorful (and there aren’t many tourists).
