On our trip to Ireland my buddy and myself visited the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Over 350 years ago local fishermen were going across to the island to fish for salmon.  In 1755, the first rope bridge was installed to allow the locals to go across to fish without relying on boats in the weather.

It was a nice hike and the rope bridge was a fun experience.  The views were amazing and it made for some excellent photography as shown below.
