Today was jam packed with places to go and see. We got an early start (most because jet lag caused us to fall asleep at 5 last night and then wake up around 2 WIDE AWAKE). We got on our PaddyWagon Tour bus around 6:40am and departed for the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge.
Our drive was very nice, it was great to get out of Dublin (dirty little city, it is) and into the green rolling hills of Ireland. We left Dublin with blue skies and then drove into fog, then out of it, then into it, then out of it, all the way to Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. I was nervouse that it would be foggy when we got there and it was a tad overcast at first but then it burned off. Oh, it was beautiful! The sun shinning on the blue ocean and green hills, lovely.
The bridge itself was not all that thrilling. I didn't go on it becuase a) you had to pay and b) I'm a scaredy cat when it comes to heights. Shannon went on it though and she made it across and back in one piece. I did watch the man who took the tickets help escort some lady across and I smiled because that would have been me had I decided to go on.
