Top of the World

Well, ok, more like top of Ireland! More holiday photos from the North Antrim and North Donegal coastline… The jacket is red wool boucle fabric with a matching silk scarf, but more of a car coat really.

This is Malin Head at the top of the Inishowen peninsula, you can just about see in the background ’80 Eire’, this was used during World War 2 as a navigation aid for pilots, so they would know they were flying over neutral Ireland. Each site was numbered from 1 to 83, there are remains all along the west coast, and some have been restored like this one on Malin Head.

And here we are at the famous Carrick a Rede rope bridge, Game of Thrones fans will recognise this!! It was truly scary to cross, it moves. A LOT.

More amazing things to see in Glenveagh National Park too, but we just missed Prince Charles visit!! Pity…

I’m skipping ahead a bit here but I love this Poulnabrone Dolmen in the Burren in County Clare. It dates back to the Neolithic Period between 4200bc-2900BC. Wow.

 

More to follow!

Giants and Dolls

IMG_4326

Another stop on my recent road trip- The Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s quite a sight!! It looks like a jigsaw puzzle, the rocks fitting neatly together. It was a beautiful day and perfect conditions for a jaunt around the hexagons.

It was wonderful to watch everyone climbing over the rocks like ants, from young to old.

The dress? …it’s a shift dress in vintage coral cotton, with black ribbon trim and tiny buttons. I’ve been quite inspired lately by Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby, her clothes are just amazing, so this is my nod to her 1960s cool.
