Summer in Northern Ireland
July 16th, 2019 - Northern Ireland is gorgeous! It is so green here...I see why this is the Emerald Isle. I found a little guest house on a farm just south of Greysteel, NI; and have been using this as a base to explore around the area, the guest house has a view of Louch Foyle. I have explored The Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, Green Castle ruins, Belfast, Derry. The area has a great history going back thousands of years. It always takes me a few days to get used to driving on the left, especially on the narrow country roads, but I am getting to be a pro after the last few days. :-) I am also staying close enough to the border that I am glad it is still open (we will see what Brexit brings). You cannot tell where the border between Ireland and Northern Island gets crossed as you drive along, except the roads signs change from miles to kilometers, and the currency changes from Euros to Pounds. So, I am carrying both currencies with me as I go back and forth. On Thursday, I will start to work my way down the Irish west coast...maybe starting with Galway. I am not sure where I will go over the next week, I just have to be back in Dublin for my flight back to London on the 24th.
