I had hoped to be spending the long weekend for the July Holidays. I had to make do with North Belfast.
Having had flights and hotel to London booked for a long weekend, I decided to reschedule a few weeks back. London is just winging it, it’s a total free for all. Think i’ll give it a miss for now.
I was always going to head over here for my monthly visit to Cavehill, might as well make it this one.
The day before, I headed to Colin Glen Forest Park. As it was a Friday off work, I headed to St George’s Market when it was quiet as big yellow arrows painted on the floor to indicate a one way system is in place is just a little too advanced for some people.
From there, I headed home to grab a few things before setting off in my car. Frustratingly, one of those things I forgot to grab was my camera.
That was a pity as I found some decent shots. I have a bit more Annual Leave to use up in July, so I do intend on returning within the next few weeks.
Back to Cavehill, I did intend on arriving early, but my bed was too comfy so I ended up being early-ish, arriving just before 9am, just early enough to secure a parking space.
All the human traffic was passing me as I went up. As a side note, seriously, is it too much effort to walk on the left and leave room for people going in the opposite way?
It’s not even a Covid issue, but it doesn’t really help.
The last time I went to Cavehill, I took a detour when I reached the top, taking a turn to the left towards the transmitter mast.
That time, the weather was rubbish, so I didn’t get any decent photos.
This time would be different, as I was treated to daylight and lots of it to work with.
Too much you could say, it was absolutely roasting.
Off I went, snap snap snap, really happy with the photos.
I was tempted to further explore the hill I was on. I presume it would have led me to somewhere in Newtownabbey as I could see Henderson’s Warehouse at the bottom.
Up next, before the end of the month, I hope, will be Cregagh Glen/Lisnabreeny Hill and Colin Glen Forest Park
