Friday Randoms and Reflections


Given that this was the final day of half term, we decided just to 'go for it' inspite of the weather and headed for Newcastle County Down at the foot of the Mourne Mountains.  The rain clouds did unfortunately cover the mountains but we braved the wind and rain to walk the promenade.

Several new art pieces have been installed along the promenade, like this Globe - a great reflective surface.

Starfish


You can't visit Newcastle without having a 99 or a poke, as that is what we call an ice cream cone with a chocolate flake stuck into it.  I can vouch for it being very good!
