travelogue, part 1

So, first I went to a cool and rainy country.

It had fences.

And there were many cliffs.

(My dad was with me for this part of the trip, so we did quite a lot of hiking, and even tried to climb a mountain; which, however, was not a great success as it was entirely covered in bog.)

We traveled north, across the border, and found some murals.

There were also a whole bunch of hexagons.

And a puffin. (With Dad along, you do a lot of birdwatching as well.)

Wow, what are those hexagons? Will you tell us where you were?

Well, I figured it might be fun for people to try to work out for themselves where I was, but I shall post locations in the comments:

#1 and #3 -- on the road between Galway and Sligo

#2 -- Inishmor, Aran Islands

#4 -- Bogside murals, Derry

#5 -- Giant's Causeway

#6 -- Rathlin Island

Pretty! But how did they make the hexagons?
