Me in Mid-Ulster

Posts Tagged ‘bogside

We went on the Derry sightseeing bus today. Have to say that although I felt like an eejit, it was actually both good craic and educational at the same time. To be honest we were only taking the children on it as they wanted to get on to a bus, but it was definitely worth going on. The little one fell asleep but my 4 year old was fairly interested. Most of it went over his head but he enjoyed the trip.

I did learn some things. I haven’t been in around Nelson Drive and Caw since I did my driving test and it’s changed since then. I’d also never seen what Ebrington barracks looked like- it’s huge! I was never aware that anyone from Derry/Londonderry ever won the Victoria Cross for bravery either.

Derry has changed for the better in the past five years. I rarely go into the town when I come over ‘home’ so I enjoyed my hour of reminiscing.
