Friendship Club
by pdtempan  15 May 2011
On Sunday 1st May a group from the Belfast Friendship Club took the train to Bellarena and climbed Binevenagh. There were 10 of us, and 7 nationalities represented: Hungarian (X3), Indian (X2), Spanish, Czech, Rumanian, German and English. The weather was perfect and we were able to picnic on the cliff-top. We had only a little time to explore one of the fangs on the way down, but we saw some lovely purple orchids there. As the train was delayed by half an hour on the outward journey, we ended up running the last 20 mins to make sure of catching the train. Next trip: Cave Hill!
