{captured} Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland

If you don’t follow me on instagram, you won’t have witnessed me falling in love with Northern Ireland at the weekend.  Not only was our whole weekend filled with breathtakingly beautiful scenery…it was also filled with back-to-back blue skyes!

Before we left, we had a short list of things we wanted to see and do whilst over there.  It felt so good to not only tick them all off, but to get a few extra in too.

First to be ticked off was Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge just a few short miles from where we were staying at Ballycastle.  But before we got to the bridge, we had a little wander towards the sea.

Told you.  HEAD.  OVER.  HEELS.  IN.  LOVE.

And then it was time for the rope bridge itself.    It was about a mile’s walk down to the bridge…enough time for a few butterflies to get in Alf’s tummy ;)

One thing we weren’t expecting was to queue to get on it.  But this was only about ten minutes.

Don’t…Look…Down!

Well, actually yes, Look Down – It’s a Must!

Once you get to the other side, you get to roam around the island in your own time…and take a family snap or two…

You see that house up on the top?!  I want to go and live there.  With chickens and pigs and a pony called Delboy.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Done.  We loved it.  It was so good in fact {well that and we realised a few other things we wanted to see were National Trust}, we signed up as National Trust members there and then.

Speaking of which, our next stop took us to Giant’s Causeway…
