... Titanic on the floor of the ocean, 4 kilometers below the surface.
After our "Titanic Experience", we visited some more Belfast landmarks, including McHugh's, where drinks have been served for three hundred years. We also stopped by the Customs House where James Larkin addressed dockyard workers during the strike in 1907, and then had a great meal at Madison's Hotel.
... br> The team are shaping up well, Myles is the chef on board.
Tonight (Sunday) we had a lovely beef stew. Ben is a natural with sail setting
because of his experience with aerodynamics. He was able to obtain optimum
speeds, with what appeared to me to be totally 'wrong' sails. Jeremy is full of
enthusiasm, which is catching and inspiring. His pure joy at seeing the seals
and jelly fish made me smile.
All in all a good days sail....
... possible imagine to meet. The fact that he wants to be Irish is only a bonus lol. The fact that his fancy Italian sportsbike keeps "calving" on the roadside while we're away isn't even enough to **** us off enough to dump him by telling him we're just going to the shop for a few minutes...& then feck off down the road like bats outa hell. This trek wouldn't have been the same without any one of these lads.
So, we're now on the ferry to Scotland...& officially headin abroad!!!
... The Queen of England stays here, and even Kate and William signed the guest book! It was really neat to see and the castle was decorated beautifully.
We met many interesting people from Lebonon and Egypt and learned about their culture. We ate a quick dinner then had to run off to Stormont for another organization's party that Basil was hosting.
This dance was for the organization known as the 714 organization. It was for teenagers ...
Hey Friends of St. Patrick and friends in general! Brandt again. We're having a ball (hence Patrick and the crew are throwing a hurling ball around in the house right now). Dugan has the fire roaring in our cottage, and I'm sipping a Guinness to cap off the day. We drove by the Guinness Brewery (St. James Gate) in Dublin today- but after 2 trips to Dublin I still haven't been to the brewery.
The last couple days have been great (obviously)! ...
