The Honeymoon: Day 4, Belfast

May 21, 2011.

We arose at Willowbank House to an immediate Dire Rabbit sighting, which I understand is a portent of doom in Ireland.

That rabbit was huge, easily the size of a beagle, say. I fear for Irish carrotry and their horrible fate. We had another excellent Cooked Irish Breakfast in the dining room of Willowbank House. I should note that the accents of the residents of Enniskillen were a gentle deepening of the Irish lilt just touching on a Scottish brogue - nothing like the impenetrable Belfast accent we were soon to be puzzled by. I ended that sentence with a preposition; deal with it.

We drove into Belfast and had a day filled with pictures!
