"Sweeping Beam"

Northern Ireland Situation Update #2

The Situation Updates are now days behind schedule, and my love for being fashionably late has been slightly disturbed by the fact that I am now disasterously late.

This morning was different. I woke up to the cockerel reciting the infamous 'cock-a-doodle-doo' thing. Funny how much it sounds like the one in Shaun the Sheep. I tried my 'Curiously Cinnamon' cereal which I got in Asda (I love visiting the english shops) and it was quite the hit. Thankfully Daisy the part-goat-part-tyrannosaurus-rex decided not to start the day by ramming the window like she did yesterday evening:

Anyway, we greeted the ponies and decided to head into the town of Ardglass, which was once visited by Ed Sheeran apparently (not so fun fact for you there). It was boring, but they did amazing ice-cream. Found an old Porsche, then a new Citroen. Oh wait that was our Citroen, which explains why we all hopped in and drove to Strangford. It was a really beautiful place. Then we saw a car ferry and for no reason whatsoever proceeded to get on it and sail across to Portaferry, where I found these cool spots:

We had chips, and in doing so missed the ferry back to Strangford, which left us sitting there staring idolly at the back of the boat we were supposed to be on. Long story short it returned and we actually got on it then.

One thing I do not credit the Northern Irish for is their inability to understand which side of the road they are supposed to be driving on. Three times we were nearly wiped out altogether. But all was well when I got back and saw what could possibly have been the most stunning view I've ever seen:

And believe me when I say that the picture does no justice!

And believe me when I say that the picture does no justice!

Yeah, it was pretty amazing. Then I made some silhouette shots, hence the new profile pic. And then I got chased across the wall and was blocked from entering the property by 'Daisy the wicked goat of all things bad in the world' (that's her official title). Other relevant news is I think Jake has given up on my attempted abduction and murder, but the others are really going all out. And all in the name of proving I am brave. I must be the bravest person in the world.

Until next time.

No wait I forgot the most important. It went pitch black and we stood out and literally marvelled at the 'sweeping beam' of light shining across the land and sea. Real tear-jerker of a sight. Weird.

Right for real bye this time.
