A super early morning to get to Dunstanburgh before the sunrise.

Devon Day 2; Hartland Quays
Somewhat out of order in terms of blog posting! But! Better late than never…? On day 2 in Devon we went to Hartland Quays, and then to Speke’s Mill Waterfall.
Very nice it was there too. The walk from the Quays was pleasant, and then the beach was cool as well, some caves and the bottom of the waterfall and some interesting rock formations.
Last day, Croatia
Croatia (day 4)
Croatia (Day 3)
I’m really behind on posting it would seem!
I stopped in Croatia for more than one day. Croatia was really hot for the entire week we were there. On the second day I got up at sunrise and went for an explore down by the beach. It turned out that the best photos of the landscape were near the nudist beach….
Because our hotel was in front of a large mountain, the sunrise wasn’t quite as epic as it could have been, but the early morning hazy colours were still beautiful.
Northern Ireland – Cushendun
The first full day of our mini trip was forecast to have the best weather. In the run up to the holiday, I did my usual compulsive weather checking and it kept getting sunnier and sunnier. Now sun is all well and good, but it’s not always good for my style of photography.
When we woke up it was overcast and cloudy, but as the day went on, the cloud dispersed leaving with a pretty clear sky by the time it was afternoon.
In the morning we left our B&B and made the short drive to Cushendun. It was only about 5 mins away, and when we got there we were pretty much the only people there.
As we were leaving though it was really busy. I think it might be one of the stop offs on the Game of Thrones tours as the scene where Melisandre gives birth to the shadow thing was filmed there.
As we were leaving on the last day the lady who runs our B&B was showing us the health and safety checks HBO had done before allowing filming at the caves. Apparently they had rented out all of the B&Bs near by, one of which had to have a room which needed to be kept at a constant temperature so the shadow baby thing didn’t deform!
Northern Ireland – Carrick-a-Rede
We went to Ireland for a few days. We arrived in the afternoon, and after checking into the B&B we went off to explore a little bit.
The rope bridge had no tickets left so we just walked up and down the coast a bit.
Even though it looked sunny, it was really windy and the wind was quite bitter. we shall have to try to go over the rope bridge another day!
Day 10 – Bull’s Bay
Today was our first full day on Anglesey, and we set out to visit some bays on the opposite side of the island to where we are stopping.
I had wanted to visit Dulas Bay, but I was tired and it was late afternoon so we came home and had a nap. That will have to be a trip for another day.
This evening we had a nice enough sunset over the opposite side of the bay.
