On the same day that we explored Giants Causeway, we also went to Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. This suspension bridge connects the mainland to the tiny Island of Carrick. It was a gorgeous hike leading up the the rope bridge, and then on the other side was the beauty of the ocean and greenery. However the bridge was one of the coolest parts of this trip. While standing in line and watching others walk across, with the rocks and water saying hello below, I had the feelings of standing in line for a roller coaster. My heart started beating as I got closer the the stairs that led down to the rope bridge. TJ was taking up the rear so he could get photos of everyone walking across. When it was my turn to walk, I got really excited. Halfway across I made sure to turn around so TJ could take my picture. At one point I remember yelling one of the students names because they were purposely bouncing across the bridge to make it shake for everyone. Cool but not cool at the same time. LoL.
Anyway, below are photos of both Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. I hope you enjoy them!
Unfortunately I was not in this photo as I had walked back to the bus to let our bus driver know we were going to be another 30-45 min.

If you ever have a chance to visit Ireland, make sure these two wonders are on your to do list. You will definitely not be disappointed. :-) I also must give all this photo credit to TJ. I cannot take credit when the photos are so amazing. lol.
