No trip to northern Ireland would be complete without a visit to the Giants causeway.
Entry to this natural phenomenon is free …. but the car park run by the National Trust is
very expensive !
First you walk about a kilometer along a well made path/road.
Once you come upon the basalt pipes that constitute the feature you are able to scramble over it
with very few restrictions.
there were quite a few people exploring the site the day we were there but I'm sure that it becomes very crowded in the season.
You can see the scale of the columns when tony stand at the base of one large crop of pipes.
Further along the path there are more features to see .
My photo is using the zoom on my camera came out a little strange but you can still the the size of it anyway.
Then there is the long walk back to the car park.
GAME OF THRONES
There are lots of locations used in the Game of Thrones TV show scattered all over the countryside.
This avenue of trees is called the dark hedges in the series and it is truly spectacular
Our two weeks in our little house at Ballintoy were terrific.
This holiday was going just as we had planned ...slow and relaxing.
After a short visit with family I Wales we finished up our holiday is the little city of Wells.
Our stay coincided with a Bank Holiday weekend but we managed to see this little gem without too many problems.
The Bishop's Palace with its lovely building and beautiful grounds
gave us hours of pleasure as we explored
and then there was the
Spectacular from the outside
and even better on the inside.
The whole cathedral precinct was full of beautiful old buildings
and we wandered at leisure taking it all in.
What a terrific place to end our holiday.
On our last day we grabbed our last Cream tea from the bishop's Palace Tea Room
Pity we can't get this stuff in Australia. It is WONDERFUL !!!
Another wonderful holiday.
