There may be a bit of a perception that I’m all against nature, and think that much of it would be improved by the application of copious amounts of concrete. To be honest, there is some truth in that; I think that we need more roads, and it’s not like buying houses is going out of fashion, so the demand has to be met somehow.
But it’s never that simple, is it? I still like the odd bit of nature. I like wildernesses, I like watching the clouds, I like walking along beaches.
Which is why I’m quite happy to see this. The National Trust have opened up Divis and Black Mountain for recreational purposes. Which is nice.
Not that I plan on using them, but, y’know, it’s nice to know that they’re there in case I ever wander up that way.
