Weather certainly brings a little sunshine to our lives
For the first time this year, a holiday weekend and glorious weather coincided and the result was a joyous exodus of people to our seaside resorts and country parks.
As photographs in this newspaper reveal a little sunshine goes a long way in Northern Ireland and puts a smile on what seems like the entire population. Add in the spectacle of the annual Belfast marathon when thousands of occasional runners rubbed shoulders if ever so briefly yesterday with serious athletes to bring colour and excitement to the streets of the capital. Today it may be back to the reality of the working week for most people, but the next bank holiday is only weeks away. Keep smiling.
