Ed tried a Boyne Ale local to Drogheda and I had a cider this evening.

This morning we drove east along the Causeway Coastal Route. First stop was at a scenic overlook with a castle.

The bit of rock on top of the left hill is all that's left of the Dunseverick Castle.

Another beautiful beach.

Ballintoy harbour

One of several loctions in Ireland where the Game of Thrones is filmed.

The rope bridge to the island Carrick-A-Rede. We opted to skip this tourist attraction.

Kilbane Castle isn't in great shape. It was built in 1547 by Colla MacDonnell (Ed's mom was a MacDonnell).

That's me at the end of the pennisula. I got my adrenaline rush by walking out to the end of the pennisula along a narrow path. I was high enough that birds were flying below me.

The harbour at Ballycastle.

We decided to leave the coastal road and cut cross country, which included going up a hill and seeing beautiful farms.

The Agnew clan originated in Scotland but was also found in Northern Ireland near Larne. This is the remains of the Kilwaughter Castle which was once owned by the John Agnew.

Ed thinking about climbing Agnew Hill --- he didn't. Agnew Hill is one of the highest hills in the area at 474 metres or just over 1500 feet.

The token sheep photo of the day.

Leaving the Larne area we travelled south. As it was rush hour in Belfast we stuck to back roads till we were past the city. It was long before we were back in the Republic of Ireland and in the town of Drogheda for the night.
