These photos are from the Giant's Causeway; it was the second major stop on the day tour we took in Ireland. The Giant's Causeway is a stretch of beach filled with honeycomb shaped columns of rocks. According to their web-site, most of the rocks are six-sided, and there are over 40,000 of the columns. You can read more about how the columns were formed by visiting their web-site.

It is quite the trek down to the beach, however, you can pay to take a bus down and/or back up. Per the suggestion of our bus driver/tour guide, we decided to walk down, and take the bus back up. We probably would not have minded walking back up, however, it was hot, and it would have left us almost no time to explore the beach.
I love this photo. It is like a Where's Waldo page: can you spot Timmy?
We were such tourists.
