"Carrick-a-Rede Bridge is a famous attraction in Northern Ireland, strolling on narrow swaying boards, holding tightly on the railings, which hang 80 feet above the sea and connecting both ends to the steep cliffs. The Carrick-a-Rede Bridge, built between cliffs on Northern Ireland's fragmented coastline, was originally designed simply because fishermen wanted to cross the cliff to fish on another cliff. At first, only one side of the cable bridge was provided with guardrails. Whenever the winds were blowing, the rickety body seemed to always throw people to the side without guardrails. Now, for safety reasons, the other side of the bridge was also provided with guardrails, even though the waves were still beating against the cliffs. It is often very windy here, because there are empty places everywhere, and there are cliffs, so the wind is particularly good. If you come to visit the attractions, hope is that the wind can be a little smaller, because the suspension bridge hangs, the wind will make the bridge shake left and right, people will lose their center of gravity. I went on a very windy day, but on the return journey, I was crossing the bridge with a group of young foreign men, they were playing, and shook the arms on both sides, making the suspension bridge rocking particularly hard on both sides, I shouted to them to stop, Then even the guards at both ends called to let them stop, and then quickly came to the shore. Scared to death, I really dare not look down, the abyss. The suspension bridge, due to the problem of bearing capacity, can only allow one way, both ends have staff always guarded, after a period of time put the end of the tourists past, then see which side of the tourists up, and put which side of the people past, repeatedly."
