If the Giant’s Boot fits

October 23, 2013

Giant's Boot Giant's CausewaySo yesterday I told you how I’d visited the spectacular Giant’s Causeway at the weekend during my visit to Belfast and Northern Ireland. It’s a UNESCO heritage site and an Area of Outstanding Beauty – it’s considered one of the top four natural wonders of the UK, and it really is an extraordinary place, not least because there are bits of ‘Giant’ everywhere. Including this: the Giant’s Boot, which as you can see must have been made for a fairly large foot.

According to legend, it belonged to Finn McCool, who created the Causeway during a big barney with a Scottish giant, and when you’re up close to it, it certainly smells as though a giant’s been wearing it (it’s the seaweed); scientists, of course, would say all the rock formations at the Causeway are due to intense volcanic activity and lava. I know which version I prefer ๐Ÿ˜‰

*This is my entry for The Gallery – the theme this week is ‘Body Parts’.
