Our Christmas ritual is to walk... to the top of the hill? opposite the Ponderosa to justify stuffing ourselves with Christmas lunch afterwards.






Can't beat having a pocket full of treats always gets some attention....

You live in a nice part of the world,we go to the NW200 every year,Holyhead/Dublin fish/chips sat on the wall by the green in Armagh and ice cream at the Spa shop in Moneymore and on through Cookstown and Maghera and on to Bushmills where we rent a house.

thanks, but it's not that nice at this time of the year, no snow yet but it will appear so we are just making do with rain for the time being.
your route is interesting, why holyhead/dublin as opposed to stranraer /larne or belfast. any time i travelled by ferry i tended to always drive to stranraer ...longest was from bath. thought that was quickest way home..... not guaranteed, just what i thought.
anyway, that route takes you about 5mins from my place, do call if possible tea,beer whatever will be available to fellow members!!

Really enjoy the journey going the way we do,A5 to Holyhead and as soon as we cross the boarder into NI great roads after that,going Stranraer is way too much motorway.

Ironically just had a long weekend over there flew to Belfast,train down to Dublin a night on the lash at Johnny Fox’s in Wicklow mountains(amazing) back to Belfast and home collected my KTM goodies brought back from the States in hand luggage and home phewww.
