We had a great wee time reliving old memories of our childhood and relating them to our 6 year old grandaughter who was with us. My Auntie has a caravan in Castlerock so we spent a few hours there.  Will let u know the next time we are thinking of heading that way.
Called into Bushmills Inn on the wayhome and had a great meal.  Last time we were up that way we went into Smugglers, didnt enjoy the meal one bit.

Did manage to see what I thought was one of your dogs down at Jordanstown Lough Shore one day but I was on a bus at the time ::) :-\

I like to go to Castlerock on a warm evening. I was going to go there tonight, but MC is a bit tired. I've got to know some folk who go down there and take it easy, watching the surfers, kids, walkers, dogs, etc. They have an ice cream, knit, read the paper, one lady even writes poetry, and just relax. It's a very nice atmosphere.

Could have been us at Jordanstown, Sometimes we go to the Loughshore Park, but I might just go round the sports field down there.  ;) :)

I am going to trouble you again but I used to get snuff for my Aunt Ginny in a wee shop  on the other side of the road from Rabbinsons, not Grogans but up a bit from that I think. Do you recall it. Thanking you. Floral
