Outdoor Wednesday - Road Trip Through Ireland #2

Our first week-end on the Emerald Isle was spent in Northern Ireland near Belfast. It takes about 4+ hours to drive from Shannon airport to where we were staying. Lovely drive. One of the first things we noticed as we were traveling along was statues in seemingly random places. A life size blue ox with its rear end to traffic, a huge spiral rod, various pieces of mathematical symbols, but the one we liked the most is called "the Wibbly Wobbly House" according to one of John's friends from there. I would love to know more about it so if anyone can fill me in please do so.

A number of the roundabouts also had statues which was fun to see. 

My favorite business "statue" was this one near Galway. Reminded me of my past life as a Bathroom/Kitchen designer :)
