 Carrick-a-Rede is an "Island" of the mainland of Co. Antrim near the Giant's Causeway. There is a rope bridge connected to the island. Centuries ago, fisherman used it to catch the salmon who swim though here.  It used to we two ropes. One to hold onto, the other to step on as you shimmied across. Fortunately, today it is far sturdier. It was a wonderful day to go across. Not too windy. The sun was shining, and the water looked positively tropical!
It is not as warm as it looks.

Little wobbly in the center here...

That is a long way down...

The Bridge from afar.
 The island on the horizon has chalky cliffs just like the ones in Dover England
The white cliffs of Dover?!

Sheephead Island. Don't ask me why it is called that.

A closer look at Scotland!
