Sometimes it’s just nice to have a quiet relaxing weekend, away from all the crowds and noise of the city. Neil and I decided we would take Hannah out for long walks and take pictures of the local area.
We started off our weekend by watching the solar eclipse. It was a pretty cloudy morning, so there wasn’t much we could view but still it got us up out of bed early.
We took Hannah along Bangor’s seafront, which has a really nice coastal walkway. You can get fantastic views of the sea and any small sail boats passing by. If you ever visit N.Ireland you should definitely come to Bangor. There’s plenty of eateries and bars nearby, as well as Bangor Castle and several parks. Neil and I discussed the good news that Queens Parade, which is located on the opposite side of the seafront, is finally getting a facelift (after 20 years of debates on planning).
When we got back, I worked some more on a recipe I’ve been testing out for Easter. Baking is so much fun when it goes right…recipe testing takes patience and money. Extremely annoying when a bake ends up in the bin! Glad to report I’m finally happy with the outcome and will be posting it up soonish. Watch this space!
It was brilliant to get out walking. I really like walking, as I find it has many benefits that other types of exercise don’t afford me. I find it relaxing as you can go at your own pace and take in the fresh air and scenery. It burns calories without leaving you feeling breathless. And it’s easy on your body – you’re less likely to injure yourself!
