THROUGH MY LENS

This is the Sam Thompson Bridge and links the Airport Road/Titanic Quarter to the Victoria Park in Belfast and I am linking to THROUGH MY LENS.
On 15 September 1906 Victoria Park opened to the public. It replaced an earlier pleasure park on Dargan Island, now Queen’s Island. Victoria Park features a lake, originally used for boating, with two small wooded islands which offer sanctuary for nesting swans and ducks. The park once had an Edwardian swimming pool which was in use until the 1970s.



Today Victoria Park is designated as an Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI) and is part of the Special Protection Area (SPA). Birdlife is abundant in the park, particularly in the winter months. Species found in the park include Greylag geese, Black headed and Herring gull, Heron, Little Egret, Mute swan, Mallard, Tufted duck, and Pied and Grey wagtail. The mudflats surrounding the park are rich in oysters, cockles, snails and worms, such as lugworms and ragworms. These provide a vital source for populations of wintering waders and wildfowl, including Oyster catchers, Terns and Redshank.

THE WEEKEND ROUNDUP and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS

Time for THE WEEKEND ROUNDUP and WEEKEND REFLECTIONSand this week the letter is T and Truck.  How jammy is this that I found THREE Fire TRUCKS on their forecourt when I was waiting at TRAFFIC lights.  Now today we are going on a long walk from my home THROUGH Ward Park down to the Marina and back THROUGH the park and home again.




Across the road from my home a neighbour as lovely TULIPS and a TUB with other plants in it. Then i met this lady with TWIN buddies with TWINS in it and on either side TWO TIBETAN  TERRIERS. Past another dog with a curly TAIL a bed of TULIPS . 





Yes this house is number TEN but not the Prime Minister's residence, past a car than had TUCSON on it and below  is an advert for TESCO and TOALS the bookies.























TOWER House is the TOURIST Information Centre in Bangor and  below is TRAFFIC at the bottom of Main Street.  Walking around by the Marina TOWARDS Pickle I saw these TWO Herring gull and this TWO TONED buoy with a REFLECTION.



At Pickle was the TICKET Office for the TRAIN and the racing TRACK. THEN I saw the driver of the TRAIN pushing it on the TURNTABLE.






In the distance I spied the TWO TALL spies of churches in the TOWN a child on Top of Daddy’s shoulders, a girl with a long pony TAIL and  THREE  people walking hand in hand and a boat called TROPHY.






I had to stop and TALK to this Basset Hound who TAIL had been broken since birth. this is my FAVOURITE. I stopped at these TRAFFIC lights before crossing Asda's car park to discover these TROLLEYS.  THROUGH the park again where the peacock was spreading her TAIl feathers  for me and i am sorry to say he is TRAPPED in THAT cage.





Past a TRELLIS fence, a TOYOTA car and on my home road this TOURING van called Auto TRAIL. I hope you are not to TIRED TODAY from our walk.  

THANK you for making this TRIP with me TODAY and also for leaving comments.  See you next week.

GOOD FENCES

When spending a day at my old caravan I photographed the view I have from it.  The fence between the fields is barbed wire so a bit hard to see.

This is the path up to my caravan.
