| COASTAL CAUSEWAY |
This is part two of my Ireland trip, from where I finished up on the Wild Atlantic Way and hit the road to Derry- Londonderry. Derry- Londonderry is one of the finest walled cities in Europe and the only remaining completely walled city in Ireland. It's also the start of the Coastal Causeway Route, one of the world's most epic road trips!
After a couple of roadside stops (see previous photos) I visited Mussenden Temple and Dunluce Castle but the rain stopped me from getting too many photos. ☔️🍀
My next stop was the most iconic stop on the Coastal Causeway Route, the Giant's Causeway! The rain had settled down a lot and I was decked out in waterproof gear. I headed off on a 3:00 PM guided walk with no idea of what I was walking into. At 8:00 PM I reluctantly dragged myself out of there after almost five hours of shooting! 📷
The Giants Causeway is the only World Heritage Listed Site in Northern Ireland and it was formed by volcanic lava 60 million years ago!
I did a number of "selfies" at the Causeway as I found adding a person to the landscape helped to show its scale. Unfortunately I'm a total dag ... 🤓
Note exhibit A) muddy butt and exhibit B) untied shoe laces. 😂😂
The following day was my last day of shooting and I visited three main sites; The Dark Hedges, Ballintoy Harbour and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The stretch of coastline I was on could have kept me occupied for DAYS but I made the most of the one day I had. 🍀💦🌍🇮🇪💙
