*HoNEy I'M hOMe*

Well that was short n' sweet {like meself} - did I miss anything? I'm sure I did, I love to pop in to everyone's blogs and seeing their latest projects and ofcourse all the latest juice about this & that. I'm sure there is lots to catch up on.

So, it was every bit as wonderful as I'd hope. The North Antrim coast that is. I've never actually spent much time there, ever. That is a bit sad considering I'm a native of County Down {Its close neighbour} I can't believe I have left it this long, but it has to be said, it was such a special time for both myself and Mr Mac.

We travelled to Ballintoy Harbour, bought the sandwiches and boarded the bus to The Giants Causeway - it is unbelievably beautiful. It knocked me for six. We travelled along the coast by foot, the views from the clifftops were unreal. 5 and a half hours later we arrived back in Ballintoy and drove back to our cottage, The Blacksmiths. It was unbelievably cosy and charming, I could have lived in that house forever. Overall, it was well worth the wait.

Northern Ireland is many many things, but of all things it is beautiful. Forget the politics and the stupid tit for tat that has been going on for an age or two, this is a landscape and a people that you will never forget. So many tourists head down to Dublin or Cork, most go all the way over to west coast and miss out on the magic of the North. Visit Northern Ireland - and you won't regret it. If you need convincing pop over to my flickr for more pics from my travels.
