Titanic Amble

It has been a fine day in Belfast: I drove to the city's Titanic Quarter - formerly Harland & Wolff shipyard - this morning for a brief stroll.

Belfast Harbour Marina, beside the Odyssey Complex, had a number of yachts.

This marina is at Abercorn Basin; as are numerous, high-rise apartments; a hotel; a convenience store; and a café.

SS Nomadic is berthed, of course, at Hamilton Dock, which is itself at Abercorn Basin.

Closer to Alexandra Dock, where HMS Caroline is berthed, there is wasteland on one side of the road, where a "prop" belonging to the Game Of Thrones drama series rests on scaffolding.

I have a suggestion for you, Tim. History of the Titanic. Would you consider it?
