Outdoor Wednesday - Road trip through Ireland #1

We recently returned from visiting my family in Scotland and touring parts of Ireland for our vacation. We have never been to Ireland before and had a delightful time. As always so many things to see and experience with too little time to cover everything. We are looking forward to another visit at some point.

We landed at Shannon airport, picked up our rental car and drove to Belfast. Scenery was gorgeous and the weather delightful. As we were getting closer to our destination we drove through an interesting bridge. We also drove through it on our return from Belfast to Dublin.

Word of caution. If you want to take a ferry from Ireland to Scotland you cannot take your rental car.

A common sight wherever we went - fields of cows. Lots of different colors and types. Some in grassy fields, others amidst rocky outcrops.

I'll share more of our adventures over the next few Wednesdays.

For more "Outdoor Wednesday" fun head on over to where Susan is sharing more about a movie that is being filmed in her town.


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. I'll enjoy seeing pics and hearing all about it. I've been to London but not Scotland or Ireland so it will be a treat to follow your trail. Thanks for stopping by. Jane

  2. Beautiful shots - when we went to Ireland, we never got as far as Belfast. The bridge shot is amazing.Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi, Carol,
    Thanks for stopping by. I have always wanted to go to Ireland and Scotland. Thanks for the tour, and can't wait to see more.

  4. HI Carol!
