Trip to Britain, part 1

John, Peter, Pauline & Maurice went to Britain in August. Peter was competing in the Police & Fire Games in & around Belfast & Carrickfergus. They rented places in Ireland, Scotland, & England. They also spent a lot of time with family. It was the trip of a lifetime for all them. John found it quite emotional, but really enjoyed his time there. I am so glad they had this chance.

John took a lot of pictures, so there will be multiple posts to get them all on the blog.

Here we go!

In Carrickfergus - apparently cycling is more accepted in Ireland
