Once I was invited to a wedding in Bangor, Northern Ireland. I had met and worked with a group of people from Belfast and Bangor was just a short distance away.
While on the way we passed Belfast Harbor where Harland and Wolff built the Titanic and the sister ships. One hundred years ago today, the Titanic was pushed out to sea to prove her sea worthiness. Twelve hours later, the paperwork was signed and Titanic took off for South Hampton awaiting the arrival of her first passengers. The rest is history.
My friends and I carried on the remaining 10 miles or so to Bangor, a resort town that is easily within commuting distance to Belfast. We stayed at a beautiful hotel on this square in town. Immediately to the right of this picture is the Bangor Marina which lead out to Bangor Bay and ultimately Irish Sea. We spent a beautiful weekend enjoying the wedding festivities and exploring the area.
