So asks Van Morrison at the end of "Coney Island," and the answer is an emphatic yes.
Today, along with a friend, I retraced the sites Van mentions in the song. I waited until the last possible day -- and it was another incredible experience in County Down. The weather was sublime. The scenery was breathtaking. The people were divine. What a country.
So ends the last weekend here, and dare I say it was one of the best. I'll tell you why later. But for now, we enter the final few days. I think I have to move, because I'd absolutely burst with pride and affection for Northern Ireland if I experienced any more wonders!
