it's name is a pun on the loyalist slogan 'for God and Ulster'. Sticking with the NI political theme, it sells Ian Paisley, Gerry Adams and even Drumcree burgers.

We visited Seaforde Gardens and Butterfly House this afternoon. It is a really lovely place, with an attractively ramshackle butterfly house, gorgeous gardens and a really excellent cafe.
And, on a sunny July afternoon, there were only about 10 cars in the car park. Wheras ten miles down the road in Newcastle, there will be traffic jams and crowds all summer. Go figure.
This blue butterfly took a shine to my daughter and sat on her hand for almost half an hour (she had dipped a finger in some honey water).

I saw the girls below walking round the park and assumed that they were some of the 'living history' costumed staff, but it turned out that they were actually tourists from the USA. I'm not sure what religion they are - Mennonites perhaps? - I was too shy to ask! But they certainly fitted well into the surroundings.

Pretty much everything is photogenic in Oia, even the dogs are colour co-ordinated...
We had some really excellent food, including these gorgeous tomato keftedes and wonderful sweet watermelon.

This huge bonfire (at Shaws Bridge, on the edge of the Belvoir housing estate) is decorated with an Irish tricolour and Sinn Fein election posters and will be set alight at midnight tonight. Many people object to the bonfires on political grounds, and recently environmental concerns have become an issue.
Here you can view a photo of another large bonfire in Antrim.

This will be my last post for a week or so, Belfast Daily Photo is hoping to observe the next bit of the marching season from a safe distance (I'll be wearing my sash & bowler in Santorini....)
