By yesterday afternoon all the snow had disappeared from Portrush. It's only a few miles down the road from Coleraine, but it was like a different country.
Below is a view of the East Strand. Apparently a popular place for walking off all the Christmas excesses.
A closer look - from further down the beach - at the headland seen above.
And, coming back to the car park, this is part of Portrush.
