Going Up Down

I managed to plan a nice route that took in a good proportion of new sites and a few sites I've already visited that took me on a full circle of Strangford Lough. I crossed from Strangford to Portaferry on the surprisingly expensive (but undeniably useful) ferry and drove in an anticlockwise direction up the east coast of the Ard Peninsular. There is some beautiful, unspoilt scenery at the southern tip of this spit of land.

The weather did not turn out to be as good as predicted, so instead of broken clous with bits of sunshine all I encountered all day was dullness and rain. Then, just as the daylight was ending a lovely red glow lit the western skies and I realised I was very close to Ballynoe stone circle. So, naturally I headed that way to see if I could get some nice sunset photos. Typically, just as I arrived at the end of the lane that leads to the circle the red glow disappeared and the sky returned to dullness. Nevermind ... next time.
