Afternoon at Giant’s Causeway

Evening #1 at Giant’s Causeway

You can’t come here without wondering about Fionn mac Cumhaill at some point. For some he’s just a legend. For others he is legend, and is still around here somewhere, sleeping, waiting.

A waterfall somewhere in Northern Ireland

It was a short walk from the road, and not a long drive from Dunluce Castle, but the name of the place escapes me. The rocks were slippery and I was hobbling around in pain with a recent injury so didn’t venture further downstream where the more exciting views were to be had.

Old Man of Dunluce

There was an Old Man of Dunluce,
Who went out to sea on a goose:
When he’d gone out a mile,
He observ’d with a smile,
“It is time to return to Dunluce.”

Edward Lear, More Nonsense, Pictures, Rhymes, Botany, Etc. (1872), limerick 12
