The Emerald Isle

They have just got back from a visit to Northern Ireland. Flying by plane from Heathrow to Belfast International airport.




They visited loads of places including the Giants Causeway.





Which was either built by a giant called Finn McCool or formed by volcanic eruptions 50 to 60 million years ago.

The giant version sounds much more plausible to me.




The weather was a bit rainy on and off but the views were spectacular.





They even parked near the top of a mountain to look out over a great looking bay.






They came across a ruined castle perched on the sea cliffs





and picturesque hidden away cottages .




But unfortunately they didn't take us dogs along

even though I dressed up especially.

You are so cute in your hat - I'm surprised they didn't take you with! Did they at least bring you a present?

Too bad you couldn't go along too, but it looks like a lovely place to visit. Mom loved seeing those cottages.

What a shame, you missed out on a fabulous place to run around. I've been there a couple of times, the Giant's Causeway is amazing.

We liked the pictures of the trip to Ireland. Too bad you didn't get to go. Your outfit/hat was great and you looked very handsome in it.
Maybe next time.

Ireland is such a beautiful country--we loved our visit there. I know you wish you could have gone, Wizz, but maybe you can convince them you should go the next time.
