Treasures in the Snow

We had our first snow on Friday and that afternoon I was able to get to Hillsborough and take a few shots of these Treasures in the snow.

Above is the gateway to Hillsborough Fort

As you walk around the path in front of the Fort, you see the spire of St Malachy's Parish Church.

We then left through the gateway again and followed another path to the church.

As the evening was drawing on the light became more purplish and made for a lovely snowy treasure.

Five Geese A Swimming

Instead of Six geese a-laying as the Christmas song goes, we saw only five geese a-swimming along the Lagan towpath and they were quite vocal in their disapproval of our presence!

...and then, heads held high, they swam off!

Thanks for your visit!

Christmas at Victoria Square

After visitng the Christmas Markets in Belfast we walked to the Victoria Square shopping centre.

The sparkling lights and hundreds of Christmas trees are a sight to behold.
We went up to the dome where the lights were all reflected in the glass.

The main Christmas tree is impressive!

Thankful Skies

One of the most beautiful sunset skies I've seen, right outside my own door. (Taken in Sept.)

So thankful today for antibiotics as my 13y.o. has had an awful bout of tonsillitis and I appreciate more than ever the National Health Service in our country and the availability of these medicines at short notice.
Thankful she has turned the corner thanks to treatment.

Helter Skelter!!

At the Christmas markets there are a few children's amusements and this one brought back fun memories for me: it's a Helter Skelter!

Did you ever slide down one?  As the sign says, "Fun for All"!
We let the kids have fun on it!

Christmas Market

Last Friday evening we visited the Continental Christmas Market at Belfast City Hall.  It eas a mild night and there were crowds of people enjoying the food and fun.

I have to confess we went to savour the edible delights such as the Poffertjes - Dutch mini pancakes,
and Churros and bubble waffles - all with chocolate sauce and ice cream!

Appropriately, this mural is found on the gable wall of Berry Street Presbyterian Church buildings, Belfast, though I'm sorry to say I cannot find out any more about it.
