I had one of the best days I've had in a long time yesterday. Stuart and I and my parents packed up the car bright and early Saturday morning to head to the North Coast where we boarded a ferry to Rathlin Island. Rathlin Island is a small island which is inhabited by about eighty people. It is a famous refuge for birds (especially puffins) and is an amazing place to visit - so beautiful and quiet since there are hardly any vehicles on the island and parts of the island are designated nature reserves. We even got to watch seals sunning themselves on the rocks! Stu and I explored the hilly terrain on our bikes and my mom and dad did a big walk. I returned home last night feeling so refreshed. It was so good to get out of the city for the day and to spend all that time in the sunshine!
