The Giant’s Causeway

Where “Sing Song” faces are always in style.

The Giant’s Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking hexagonal basalt columns.

“Scientists” say it was created from ancient volcanic eruptions, but in reality Finn McCool, the Irish giant, created it to get to Scotland to fight his rival, Benandonner.  When Benandonner came across to fight Finn, Finn’s wife Oonagh disguised Finn as a baby.  When Benandonner saw the baby, he was terrified at the size of the father and ran back to Scotland, tearing up the causeway along the way.

It was a little breezy up there.

    This is one of Alyssa’s friends in OK and I’ve been following your adventures abroad — what great experiences for all of you! I finally had to comment. I’ve wanted to see the Giant’s Causeway for a while now. So I enjoyed seeing some pictures of real people standing there. And isn’t that just a great tale of how it “really” got that way? Someday I’d love to see the Causeway AND Fingal’s Cave on the island of Staffa in the Scottish Hebrides. It’s supposed to be the other end of Benandonner’s trip. (Of course the Scots tell a different tale — or so I’m told.) Anyway! Love it — neat memories for you all.
