Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland

Our next stop in Northern Ireland was Giant's Causeway. We were lazy so we took the bus. In our defense, it is a pretty long walk, and I wasn't super excited about carrying Alyssa.

Alyssa is going through a phase where she doesn't like her picture taken.

The views are breathtaking. I don't really have much to say on this one aside from the fact that it amazes me that these hexagonal stones are naturally formed. From what I've read, it is the result of volcanic activity. There is a myth about Giant's Causeway, though, that it was a giant, Finn MacCool that was building a bridge to Scotland.

Alyssa was more interested in the flowers.

You are right about Alyssa and her love of the bright yellow "weeds". She did her tip-toe run here and there wherever we would see the flowers. It made her happy!! Such an amazing place and to be able to say we were there is so great!!
