Jewel of the Seas — Belfast, Northern Ireland

Jewel of the Seas left Reykjavik, Iceland on 1 June 2022. We arrived at our next destination on this, the first of three back-to-back Jewel cruises, on 4 June. This week I will present some of the photographs I took on that visit, and on Wednesday’s article I’ll take you through St. George’s Market in particular. You may recall that Ursula and I have been here before. I posted a series back in May 2021 of that visit. But this week I’ll show you things we did not see that last time. After this week, instead of moving on to our next destination, I’ll be commemorating Memorial Day (first week) and the anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy (second week) before returning to the continuation of this Jewel of the Seas cruise.

City Hall — Belfast, Northern Ireland

On this particular day the local Belfastians (or is it Belfasters? or how about Belfasties?) were taking advantage of the sun with a little fun outside City Hall during what appeared to be a food-centric mini-festival.

And when I say “food-centric,” I’m talking about:

Belfast, Northern Ireland
Belfast, Northern Ireland
Grilled Cheese Toasties and other choices

While we weaved our way through the throngs of hungry people of Belfast (Belfastians? Belfasters? Belfasties?) I managed a few more traditional touristy shots:

Queen Vicky — Is that a burger she’s eyeing, and drool trickling from her mouth?
Scottish Provident Building, Donegall Square
Corner of Chichester and Callender

But we were on a mission. Ursula had a hankering this trip to visit St. George’s Market on the square block outlined by East Bridge St., Verner St., May St., and Oxford St. It is here where we spent most of our time this day, and I’ll show you more of that gem on Wednesday.
