Rathlin Island, Northern Ireland // Summer 2018

Scroll down to content

While on our way to Port Stewart, our fourth location in Northern Ireland, we took a ferry to Rathlin Island, rented cycles and rode 12 miles round trip on a very hilly trek to see Puffins, which have come by the hundreds to nest on the island, along with a few other bird species. It was like living a Planet Earth Episode! We also biked to the other side of the island to see seals and baby birds! The harbor alone was worth the ferry ride. As no cars are aloud on this tiny island, we were free to ride at our own pace – which was necessary because it was STEEP! Unfortunately, I did not bring my telephoto lens with me on this trip, so I didn’t get any great shots of Puffins, but the island landscape was gorgeous!
