LOVED Dublin. We took the Princess Shuttle into town. They drop you off near Trinity College. From there, we went to the Museum of Natural History and the National Gallery of Ireland. Both were free and very good. Next, we walked to Grafton Street and ate lunch at Bewley's. Had an excellent salad (beet, goat cheese, and bacon w/walnut and orange dressing) and berry and apple cobbler for dessert. Then we walked to Christ Church Cathedral and toured it. Very interesting tour. After that, we walked through Temple Bar and sat outside at a pub and had a pint of Guinness. Nice day, warm and partly cloudy.

We arrived on a beautiful sunny day. Very warm. There was a triathalon going on, so the HOHO busses weren't running. We walked to Chinatown and had lunch. Then walked down to Albert Dock and viewed the Picasso exhibit @the Tate, which was very interesting. We then walked to a pub and watched the end of the England/Germany match in the World's Cup.

We booked a private excursion to Giant's Causeway with McComb's. After they picked us up, we toured through Belfast, including the areas of The Troubles (Shankhill and Falls Rd), and then drove up to Giant's Causeway. We stopped at Carrick a Rede rope bridge (for pics only). At Giant's Causeway, our lunch was included, and we had a choice of a few dishes. We chose Irish stew, and it was very good. We had quite a bit of time there to explore the causeway. It was stunning. After that, we headed back to Belfast. Lots of riding time, but well worth it to see Giant's Causeway.

Beautiful city!!!! It took a little longer to get the tender here. But once we got there, we took the train to Edinburgh and went immediately to Edinburgh Castle. We had lunch @a Thai restaurant right of the Royal Mile, did some shopping on Prince Street, and then toured Holyrood Palace (which is equally as interesting as Edinburgh Castle). Took the train back to South Queensferry. A wonderful day!

I did not care for LeHavre. But, we took the train to Rouen, and found it very charming. We had a nice lunch on the square area (around where Joan of Arc) was burned at the stake. We shopped there and toured Cathedral du Notre Dame (beautiful).
