We wake to a sunny morning and no breeze to speak of. Stepping outside the Hymer it’s a very mild start to the day. Our after coffee plan, is to walk up the headland to visit a ruined church noted in the LP.
After 15 minutes of exploring we make our way back to the Hymer and continue our adventures. From Cushendall we drive up into the Glenariff Forest Park on the A43. The LP recommends a walk here, so we turn for the car-park.
After walking steadily down stream for an hour, we find there is no escalator and the long hump out of the gorge begins. Back in the Hymer we cool down for a while before continuing on to Ballymena, which is the largest town in the County.
We had thoughts of a night out dinner and drinks in Ballymena. After walking around the town for an hour without finding anything of interest other than a some casual thing for Pam to wear around the pool in Santorini. We throw the dice and drive on for Toomebridge and The Crosskeys Inn.
