Northern Ireland

8 June 16        Stranraer to Carrickfurgus.  Ferry over to Northern Ireland then a walk around Carrickfergus
before finishing the day at the camp site at Jordanstown, just north of Belfast.
 Thick fog at first, lifting into low cloud which later cleared to give hazy sun.

Also see here  and  here.

Blind Johnnie's Monument, Stranraer.  Blind Johnnie (John Alexander) was a local street musician.
 The original concertina which Johnnie played is in the local museum (the museum calls it a melodion).
This was the only thing I photographed in Stranraer - not the most photogenic place on a dull misty morning.

The mist is starting to clear just a few metres offshore.
