Monday was husband Danny's birthday but as we got back from Poland just the day before I didn't manage to organise much of a birthday extravaganza this year, whoopsie! We made do with a lovely walk in the forest in Crawfordsburn country park, not far from Belfast, followed by a nice Italian lunch and lots of charity shop shopping (that bit wasn't so much part of Dan's birthday treat as a concession to my obsession).
I'd never been to Crawforsburn before so it was a nice discovery, especially as we only walked the path that goes to the waterfall so we have an excuse to go back again to do the part that leads down to the beach at Helen's Bay.
After our walk and lunch we stopped at Grey's Point Fort which I was hoping was going to be an ancient fort but in fact was of the military variety. Two huge guns still pointed out across Belfast Lough on a particularly lovely hazy and wintery (birth)day.
