We went to sleep with the waves pounding against the shingle beach last night and woke to the same rhythmic sound this morning. The wind has dropped but the breeze is still cool. We have been joined by a VW camper at some stage but we never noticed its arrival.
Coffee and fruit as usual and we go for a walk…
Back in the Hymer we drive south-east across the Ballypatrick Forest for Cushendun. The large car-park on the edge of Cushendun has a toilet and tap so we service the Hymer before going for a walk.
Game of Thrones continue…
We thought about sitting it out for the day in Cushendun, but the internet is just non-existent so we drive on to Cushendall a larger town. Mind you the internet is just as bad and we surmise it’s a network issue. If all else fails go for a walk and find a pub.
We find ourselves outside the Central Bar a couple of doors from the tower. We step inside it’s 1860 vintage bar to find a tradie chatting to the Publican. We order a Guinness and Savblonc and the Publican tells us the bars history. I would normally comment about the day sliding by, but a young couple walk in from Parramatta. So we take enjoy chatting with them for an hour.
