Coasting the Causeway

So, Flax Fox is now a proud stockist for the Giant's Causeway gift shop. I personally delivered it myself - I was itching to get back up the North Coast for some fresh sea air and boy was it worth it…...


It never seems to leave me no matter how many times I visit. The feeling of wonderment at the sight of the Giant's Causeway. You can't escape that sea air, oh no definitely not! But it doesn't matter because there's magic in the air.

Now, my first hour was filled with slight annoyance at the BBC's weather promise of sun clouds and dry weather. Why was I surprised this was not the case? Armed with camera and tea towel in tow, I was not wasting this photo opportunity. We marched through the new centre and began to make our way to the stones.

Did I mention before there was magic in the air? Well, once that tea towel was in shot for the camera the drizzly clouds departed and the sun shone through….Hallelujah!

I spent four hours at the stones shooting footage for my next Flax Fox video blog. I CANNOT WAIT to share these visuals with you, (hence the capital letter excitement) honestly they're pretty special and you will be the first to see it.

Next stop was Carrick-A-Rede Rope bridge…..And yes, GASP I did a photo shoot on the bridge above the crashing waves. Thank goodness I'm here to share the evidence. Do you see what I do for my art?

You can see a slight bit of fear on my face here peeking over the cushion. Ben was trying to make me do a side-to-side step trick for the camera. I'm no Angelina Jolie I'm afraid. Little baby steps is all he got. 

Exploring the North Antrim Coast is stunning and I strongly encourage you all to take a trip if you haven't been in a while. Honestly, it's good for the soul.

Until next time…
