Stuff I See On My Lunch Break

Yesterday’s lunchtime run took me out of the city and through the Titanic Quarter to H.M.S. Caroline. Caroline was a British battle cruiser which fought at the Battle of Jutland in 1916 during the 1st World War. It is the last survivor of Jutland but also operated as the H.M. Naval base in Belfast during the 2nd World War. From Caroline, the Atlantic and Arctic convoy routes were managed, many of the convoy protection fleet operating out of Belfast.

Caroline continued to operate as a training and administrative base until its honourable decommission in recent years. It is now a museum where visitors from all over the world can visit and learn more of its proud history. There and back was a 5.2 run along the waters edge, weaving through throngs of visitors in the midday sun. Be sure to check out Caroline if you visit Belfast. It’s worth the walk….or run.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. I always feel as if I’m intruding on a decommissioned ship. She’s retired, she doesn’t have to work, and here I go, traipsing about. A quirk, a whim, or a feeling of phantoms? I’ll never know.
