Day 183 – Slán (So Long)…

It was time today to say farewell (slán) to Ireland, and drive home. This was our last proper look at the Causeway Coast as we headed off early to catch the ferry across the Irish Sea. We’ve had a brilliant couple of weeks in Ireland, and will be back for sure! Next adventure will be Ibiza in about 3 weeks – that’s going to be a different experience..

Day 180 – After The Rain…

As the weather forecast was good when we got here, we had an early supper, and headed to the Giants Causeway – just in time for a massive rainstorm. We sat it out for half an hour and it cleared just as quickly, leaving this fantastic sky.

Day 175 – Anchor Beach…

Near Cleggan, in Connemara, Ireland, this beautiful beach takes its name from an ancient anchor buried in the sand… It is believed to be from the 1000 ton 3 mast barque ‘Verity’, from Nova Scotia, that was wrecked in a storm in 1890.

Day 173 – Don’t Jump…!

These are the Cliffs of Moher, and pretty impressive too…. It’s a great sight, but incredibly busy, with thousands visiting every day. The central area has marked paths, and the cliff edges are fenced off, but further round, it is much more open, and we saw people perilously close to the edge!

Day 142 – So Long…

Sadly, we won’t be waking up to this view of Porthleven tomorrow – yesterday was our last full day, and we headed home today. We’ve had a glorious few days in Cornwall (almost a fortnight in fact) – we’ve seen wonderful scenery, walked on some beautiful sandy beaches, and eaten some excellent food. What’s not to like! We will be back…
