Cindy's trip to Ireland

    The Titanic Museum in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is built to represent the bow of the ship. In fact, the exterior walls are the same height as the Titanic -- and they are giant!

    This is how the riveting was done. A worker on one side of the wall put the super-hot rivet into place, then a worker on the other side pounded the end flat to secure it.

    I wish you could see how big this anchor chain is. There was no way to get close enough to give you something in the photo to compare it with.

    My lunch at the museum cafe. It was supposed to be representative of the food on the Titanic, but I have a hard time believing that. Maybe it's just me.
