Ravings From The Bog


The Belfast Eye

A recent trip to Belfast found Sophie and I at the top of the Belfast Eye, as it is known locally. We weren’t to be outdone by the London Eye! Ours is much smaller but no less impressive. What was even more impressive was Sophie’s eagerness to get on and enjoy the view. My twenty year old son, Chris, was clinging to his seat nervously as the cabin swung gently to and fro in the breeze. We were lucky to have a clear view with the intermittent weather.

The view here is of Belfast Lough in the distance and the now redundant yellow Harland and Wolff shipyard cranes, recently saved for posterity. Also in sight is the recently built Victoria Centre’s glass dome. This centre is soon to have an Apple store – oh joy!

I was born in Belfast and after twenty one years living in Bangor, I’m still very pleased to make it back any chance I get. I’d really like to work in town, preferably getting the train in, so that I could read or listen to my iPod.
