We are half-way through our half-term Halloween holiday, and it seems an appropriate time for an update with photos and some digital scrapbook layouts too,
The weather has changed to wintry, with the first snow in Northern Ireland in October for 25 years! The winds have been very strong and my 4 year old complained about the wind is being too noisy, and could I get Jesus to turn off the fan in the sky!
So far we have only been on the beach once (Runkerry Strand, Portballintrae, near Bushmills), and there were some wonderful breakers.
I received an email from Barbs in Canada, asking me if I had even been to a place called Dark Hedges as she had come across a picture of it, giving it’s location as Co Antrim. I had vaguely heard of it, but always up for a challenge, we went to look for it yesterday.
Only had a few minutes to photograph it, as it was bitterly cold, but I plan to return during the different seasons. They are a tunnel of 300 year old beech trees, on a quiet county road, and not the sort of place you would find easily! Beautifully unspoilt, and very atmospheric.
Finally for now, a couple of digital scrapbook layouts to share. (Click for credits)
