Goodbye Scotland, Hello Northern Ireland

We hopped up around 5:30 this morning to get the car packed up so we could deliver Nana to the airport for her early flight. We were sad to send her back to Texas but are so very thankful for our time with her in Scotland.

After we dropped her off, we proceeded to drive no faster than about 10 mph from Edinburgh to Glasgow because of construction and rush hour traffic, which was extremely frustrating, since we had to check in for our ferry to Belfast no later than 11:00. We eked into the terminal with just about ten minutes to spare. This was a very fancy ferry, and we had a great time on our 2 1/2 hour ride across the Irish Sea. We landed in Belfast and then spent another hour and a half driving up to Bushmills (of whiskey fame, if you're in to that sort of thing), which is where we will stay for two nights, before heading south into Ireland. (In case you don't already know, Northern Ireland is still part of the UK, while Ireland is a whole separate country.)
