|Once Upon A Time, by Arlene McPadden|
I visited the Ulster Museum briefly this afternoon.
Stranmillis Road was as busy as ever, so I drove across to College Gardens, almost opposite Deane's at Queen's restaurant.
There was an exhibition by the Royal Ulster Academy at the museum.
A painting of Paddy Mackie at Castle Espie, County Down, by Julian Friers particularly impressed me; as did an exhibit by Arlene McPadden.
Thereafter I went for a stroll at the University quarter.
Almost all of Upper Crescent is for sale or to let.
It's such a shame that the present owners allowed this fine terrace to deteriorate to such a degree.
Nevertheless, let us hope that new owners shall be more sympathetic to one of the city's finest terraces.
