We stayed almost until sunset, climbing to the top to get a great aerial view of the 37,000 basalt columns.
Upon reaching our car, we decided to stop by a coffee shop in a small neighbouring village before driving to Dublin, Ireland to meet Marcel. The Giant’s Causeway has been a big highlight of my last European vacation.

When I think of my two visits to Belfast I often re-call and probably sang more than I should have the lyrics of Black Velvet Band:
Her eyes they shone like the diamonds You’d think she was queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulder
Tied up with a black velvet band.
In a neat little town they call Belfast
Apprenticed to trade I was bound
And many an hour’s sweet happiness
I spent in that neat little town.
Till bad misfortune came o’er me
That caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
To follow the black velvet band.
An early morning led us to the City Center, where we decided we would do some shopping.
