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!

    Beautiful photographs, Jolene! I think you must consider renting that cottage and take some more photographs.. Have a great week.

    1. Thank you, Jan. One day I may just have to rent that little cottage. 🙂

  2. castle ruins rock!! hope your trip is wonderful…

    1. It was great, Shiela! I love going places with old castle ruins. We just don’t have anything like that where I live.

  3. Great images, especially the coastal views and the rope bridge. Happy to see you are enjoying your photography.

    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.

  4. The Giant’s Causeway looks very interesting. Have never seen rock formations like that. My favourite photo is the rope bridge.

    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.

    Great photos – I really need to get over there.

    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).

  6. I really like the last image Jolene, hope you are having a blast (sounds like it)!

    1. I did have a blast, David! It was hard to come home, but I missed you all!

    1. Thank you! Ireland has been one of my favorite destinations. 🙂

    Color me jealous!

    1. And jealous just so happens to be green! And there are at least 13 shades of green in Ireland (or so I’m told). Haha. 🙂

    Nice captures Jolene. Glad to see you are enjoying your visit. 🙂

    1. It was a great visit, Emily. Glad to be home and looking forward to more photo walks.
