More from Ireland... Giant's Causeway

Can you tell how much I loved the Giant's Causeway?  I took tons of pictures but only selected a few for your viewing just in case you are not as enthusiastic about them as I am.  There are 2 mythical stories related to the formation of the Giant's Causeway.  My favorite is the one that talks about the dispute between Finn Mac Cool and Brenandonner which links the Irish causeway to the causeway in Scotland.  Oh course scientist would have you believe these amazing rocks sculptures were the result of think lava flow and pressure causing basalt rock formation which makes the rocks look like long hexagonal shaped columns.  I leave it up to you to decide was is fact and what is fiction.

Regardless of how they came into being, they were majestical.  Here are a few pictures









Oh and one from the Cliffs of Moher.  (More on that HERE.)
