Bibliography for Travels in Ireland

Heading now in the direction of the shore line, towards the Middle Causeway, we now have a view of the stone stairs we had descended down earlier.

The sun is now brightening and despite the very dark cloud out to sea we have hopes of seeing the Middle Causeway awash in sun light.

Photo left - the stairway that leads down from the cliff top path to the trail to the Organ.

I try to rush now, leaving my family to admire the shore views, trying to beat the likely storm.

In addition to the polygonal basalt structures that make of the Organ and Middle Causeway there are a variety of eroded basalt boulders that have acquired names related to their shapes, among them the camel, granny and giant's boot.

Photo left by Allison VanNocker - the boot, eroded basalt whose shape suggests a boot.

I make some distance when my wife calls me back, she too senses the rain is coming and thinks I should have an umbrella.

As we approach the Middle Causeway, it is a washed in sunshine. I take only a few photos of the causeway and the wind starts to pick up.

 

Photo left - taken by Allison VanNocker, I consider this the back side of the Middle Causeway.
