Photographer's Note

Another famous place on the Northern Ireland coast that I saw from far away only.
The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede (you see it on the right side). It spans 20 metres and is 30 metres above the rocks below. It was closed, maybe because of the COVID. But even if it were open, for sure I wouldn't cross it. As I have read, there have been many instances where visitors, unable to face the walk back across the bridge, have had to be taken off the island by boat.
I will post a wider view in the Workshop. Even without a close visit to the bridge, I found the place very beautiful.

But where is the bridge? Look at the picture in a large format. You can see quite clearly the small white house on the island. Up there a path is also visible. If you follow the path in the left direction, you will come to the bridge. It very thin and not stable, so from far away it is difficult to see.
