This morning, on a recommendation from our hosts, we had our breakfast at Springsteens Diner in Carrickfergus. It's this cool American style diner pretty much right next to the castle which we were planning on visiting, so it all worked out well for us.
We both drank strawberry milkshakes and I had the pancake stack with maple syrup. Lee had the scrambled eggs and toast. It was so nice to sit and chat for ages over our breakfast. Afterwards, we wrapped ourselves up and braced ourselves against the weather outside. It was bitterly cold and windy at the castle but it was worth our (brief) visit! The walk and the cold air did us good.
The rest of our day involved a wonderful nap and some pizza and the start of packing for our holiday in South Africa :) Five days until we leave for Dublin airport...and then three weeks of family, friends and sunshine!
