....back again
.

Shooby.....hello ! re the camera phone............its iphone and when u have pics taken u can go in and edit them.....simple thing a magic wand...........click it to enhance...
..but often as not I undo it as it looks a bit weird..............then upload to my pictures file........then upload to smugmug (like this product !!!).............!!!
.
.
bit simple really but it works except the phone camera gives crap zoom facility.............then again it is a phone first !!
.
.
.
right....I am sitting in the waiting area in Cairnryan...............very new, very clean and...........the place is crawling with cops........they're everywhere but friendly even to
this paddy.............!!!!
.
.
there is a massive police presence all over due I think to the g8 conference in county Fermanagh next week.................more on that later...!!
.
.
coffee and cookie.....
.
.

.
.
next thing.......up the ramp and into the bowels of the ship...............tied down quick and easy..........any amount of help you need is offered.......!
.
.
group of bikers tied up beside me are from Dundalk, Ireland or nearby.........they're in great form and loving life........great to see !
.
.

.
.
away away ...............boring photos on ship
.
.

.
.
.

.
.
.
full steam ahead now..
.
.

.
.
then 2 and a half hours later we are pulling into the harbour of Belfast...........see Samson and Goliath cranes in the distance (?!)...this is where the titanic was built
and many other massive boats before the shipbuilding industry slowly faded away overseas.........
.
.

.
.
more cranes and then off.....just jeans and jacket and a mad urge to fly up the road............
.
.

.
.
motorway for ever now......but making great time.....playing chicken with big s500 Mercedes..........passed the time anyways.........avoiding speed camera cars..
.
.
first stop was wee place called derrygonnelly in county Fermanagh..........note the shop front........it has photos in the windows to give the impression it is occupied !!!
.
.
every town and village in the county has the same.........it is to give the impression that these places are all busy.......truth is the recession has destroyed this border area
and there are far more closed businesses than open..............but we don't want the g8 pricks or the media to report on this...
.
.

.
.
once the media juggernaut moves on the recession can take its primary place in our society again !
.
.
I stopped again at churchhill as the bike was wandering over the poor road surface.............the front tyre was totally bald..well almost..!!!
not a stable feeling on bad roads..........
.
.
this is the church at churchhill..!!
.
.

.
.
apologies........bit more bike porn
