Summer holiday...

It seems like pretty much everyone in our house has been sick for all of 2015 so far, but last night things started to look up, the sniffles and coughing subsided a bit and there were even a few smiles to be seen. Plus on the weather front there was definitely a glimmer of sunshine and blue skies so I couldn't help but start dreaming of holidays and camping! It's still a bit cold for any overnights in the camper just yet but it's definitely not to early to start dreaming and planning!

Here are some pictures from our summer holiday last year to get us all in the mood!




We took the campervan up the north coast, starting in portrush for the airshow. It's on every September and well worth a visit - airwavesportrush.co.uk


The views from the walk down from the campsite into town are pretty nice.


The harbour at portrush.



Saw this lovely car parked and couldn't resist taking a pic!


Some planes...


Having some refreshments!


I love the red arrows and can't wait to see them every year. They were excellent as always!


The next day after the airshow we headed towards our next campsite which was in Bushmills and stopped off to have a look round Dunluce castle on the way.





Although we were only travelling a few miles each day we always made sure to stop for tea along the way.


We also visited Ballintoy harbour which looked lovely in the sunshine. It's very popular with Game of Thrones fans as it is the setting for the Iron Islands in the show. There is a lovely cafe here too.

We then took a trip over the Carrick a Rede rope bridge which is managed by the National Trust. It was much lest rickety than I remember! 


Although it was September, the weather was amazing and the sea looked positively tropical.


All cosy in the camper.


There were many spectacular views from our various tea stops.



The next camp site we stopped at was in Cushendall and the spaces were pretty much right beside the sea, which was excellent!  This is the view during the day.


And this is the amazing scene at night, the moon was very impressive indeed.



Finally we stopped in Carrickfergus, where we had a tasty picnic lunch and had a look round the famous castle.




And of course finished off with the obligatory cup of tea and a French fancy.

All in all we were only a way for a few days but we packed so much in it felt like ages! The north coast is beautiful and there really is so much to see and do although we were very lucky with the weather.

Now to start planning some trips for 2015!
