July's Pictures

Oldcastle Cross
Oldcastle Cross (QTEK 9100)

The next in the series of crosses is the Oldcastle in the centre of... Oldcastle. Forget Dunsop Hill and Mevagissey here is the cross of Oldcastle, taken during lunch at the 'Hotel' the cross sports a yellow cabin which is the festival office for the joys to come next week in Oldcastle.

Mullingar Cathedral
Mullingar Cathedral (Nisis DV5)

On a quick trip out for the day we ended up at Mullingar. Nothing much there open unless you fancy a pint and so far from home I didn't. The only other thing there was the Cathedral which if you haven't guessed from the title, this is a picture of it. As usual it's only after you take your picture do you see a postcard with a picture taken at a better angle but then again that's what postcard picture takers are paid to do I suppose.

Loughcrew Burial Mound
Loughcrew Burial Mound (Nisis DV5)

On the highest hill in County Meath sits a 5000-6000 year old burial mound. This is one of the satellite tombs which is open so that I could take a picture of the carvings on the inside of the tomb.

The main burial mound contains more carvings and there's a guided tour. I say a guided tour but when the main space of the tomb can only fit about I people max then there's not much walking around involved but all of the things you see in the tomb are pretty well explained.

View Across
View Across (Nisis DV5)

More archive pictures since the weather is bad and I'm not hoping for any good pictures. Here's a pictures over Manchester from the Hilton Hotel from the 30ish floor (i think it's the 30ish I might be wrong) if I am wrong then I am definate that it's from the Exec Lounge looking over GMEX with the Midland just overshadowed by the GMES on the left and the Bridgewater Hall on the right. In the middle you have the picture of Glass and Steel that I took in March the year before.

Crosby Beach Again
Crosby Beach Again (Nisis DV5)

This time we made and actual attempt to go to Crosby beach this time and during the day this time too. In a break from the bad weather this was a wind-lashed Crosby beach and a very bright beach too, so much so that I'd turned the brightness of the camera down to the minimum and all but one of the pictures were over exposed. We walked the full three kilometres of the beach and at one point nearly getting stuck in some sandy mud that initially scarily enough seemed like quicksand. Got out alive and counted down the tagged statues. The only problem of walking all that way was that the car was now three kilometres away.

View from the Bridge
View from the Bridge (QTEK 9100)

As usual, the view looked better in real life from the Trinity Bridge in Manchester. What's strange is after the amount of time the bridge has been in Manchester, I have never been on it. From here you can see the Cathedral and to the left (which you cannot see) the wholly unimpressive structure of the Lowry hotel. As we walked across into Salford and back to Manchester we discovered the Sacred Trinity Church which I have never seen before but is a strangely nice sight to see in the midst of all the buildings. On the way out we did spot a few smokers inspecting the newly installed outside ashtray put up outside the Rover Returns pub (I think, some of the letters were missing) in the light of the new smoking ban.

St Andrews
St Andrews (Minolta X500)

With no hope of taking any decent pictures with the bad weather here's an archive pic of St. Andrews castle. I did make an attempt to take go out to take pictures, unfortunately after driving to the Lowry with my camera bag I decided half way that the weather wasn't with me on this one. I could take pictures so long as I didn't mind everything (including me) getting wet. I decided otherwise.

This is what is left of the castle on St. Andrews. I would recommend the place as it's very pretty and almost appears to be a place apart from anywhere else. It also has a public toilet that has been just been sold for £750,000. They must be nice toilets.
