Being a Southampton girl I feel it's only right that I share how the city
remembered those lost 100 years ago.
We were actually on a night out to celebrate a friends birthday,
when we came across the above layout of the Titanic.
As a deeply nostalgic person I found it so touching.
(I did not stand on the bow and shout the obvious, I'm far too respectful for that)
Another touching detail were the passenger tags and white lilies tied to the lamp posts.
I would love to say we stayed for the whole night,
but we had a night of drinking planned.
I think they had a little re-enactment that followed the last hours of the Titanic.
We had planned to return on our way home,
after a night dancing we made our drunken way to the park.
The time was just after 2 am..
We huddled together with a gathered crowd some in dress of the period,
and listened to a narrator describing what was happening on the Titanic.
Then roughly at 2.20 the lights surrounding us went out as we were told the Titanic had now sunk.
It was a very poignant moment in my life,
I'm glad that we were there....
and then we were back on the high street surrounded by the rowdy Saturday nighters
back to reality!
