Trip to the U.K. pt. 3

On the 13th of July we watched the 12th of July parade on tv and then went down to watch the parade on their march home at the end of the day.

Luke was very proud of his Ulster flag:


We moved the car to a place a few feet from where the parade would march by. Luke wanted to give the car a go. He’d never driven on the “wrong” side of the road in the “wrong” side of the car!


When the parade was approaching, we got out to watch … in the beautiful Belfast summer weather:


Here are some pictures of the marchers:




The next day we went round to see Luke’s great-grandparents (Cairns). Here’s a photo of four generations of Cairns:


Luke, Tim, Sylvia (Nanny) and I went down into town where I got to do some shopping 🙂 and the other three did a couple touristy things. They went up the observation tower at the Victoria Centre:


And then Luke went running around at Belfast City Hall:


Hope you’re enjoying  these photos – we’ve still got lots to come! Including a visit from Derek and Katie Brown (friends of ours from Regent, who are now living in Edinburgh).
