After a beautiful (and at times terrifying) drive along the breathtaking Antrim Coast, I arrived at the Giant’s Causeway. After some frustration at the Giant’s Causeway Visitor’s Centre, I made my way down to the causeway by the shore.
This place is absolutely breathtaking. Walking along the endless columns, feeling the wind in my hair. Looking out across the water. Imagining the first people to discover this place and create the legend.
I loved watching the waves rush up over the shorter columns and then recede again. I marveled at how many thousands of years this formation has existed, and wondered when erosion or a rising sea level would make it fade into memory.
It is an ideal place to sit and relax and think about one’s life.
It’s a great place to share with your family.
It’s a place to connect with the past, and to realize that someone who visited over 130 years ago probably felt the exact same awe and wonder as you.
The Giant’s Causeway is an incredibly beautiful place and I’m so glad I was able to visit.
