Another Place

Well the Gray Nomads hit the road again and we are travelling in a Northerly direction again!

Our Daughter is married to a lovely guy from Loverpool and recently his mother celebrated a milestone birthday and we were invited.  It was a great party and we met all there lovely friends and needless to say there was some banter between theEssex girls and man and the Scousers.  A great time was had by all.

A bonus of travelling to this area was that we were able to visit the Anthony Gormley installation of 100 metal men spread over three kilometres of beach and one kilometre out to sea the art work is called Another Place and all the figures are modelled on the artists own body parts. 

We spent the afternoon and evening on the beach and as the weather was not too good there were not too many other people around and we were treated to a lovely sunset.  As we were leaving we noticed that somebody had enhanced one of the sculptures to save him from drowning when the tide came in

                                 

 

Liverpool is certainly a beautiful city with so much to see!  We took a sight seeing bus tour and a trip to the Docks where we caught the ‘Ferry cross the Mersey’ quietly singing to ourselves so as not to cause embarrassment!

The view of the famous Liver builing was just right from the Ferry a shame about the square modern cafe obscuring the right hand side!

So much to see and so little time We will be back hope you will come with us!

  1. You might have been singing quietly on the ferry lol but Wolfie wasn’t! Wolfie was singing as loudly as possible with no regard to embarrasment caused whatsoever!! Awesome photos…the sunset is amazing…and as to the sculpture 😉 What a man!!!! Love his enhancements lol,,,! Cool photo of the Liver building…found myself comparing the river and the building with The Thames and the Houses of Parl’ in London 🙂 Waiting eagerly for our next visit…and maybe we will have time to stop at the mod’ cafe…I rather like that!

    Lovely photos. When I worked in Manchester, we had a Xmas do on a ferry on the mersey and like you,just couldn’t help myself.
    I like those sculptures. He also has some by the Woolwich Ferry station but they are all grouped together and look a little sinister. Strangely, there is not much grafitti on them.
    Have you seen the beach at Morecombe…not far from Liverpool, it’s really lovely too.

  3. It was lovely news that you has invited from your son-in-law’s mother birthday.
    The photos are very interested for me and I really enjoyed very much specially the sunsets ones.
    I love the skies photos.
    Enjoy the weekend.

  4. Hi there Susan! Why has it taken me so long to discover your blog? Thanks for stopping by mine. I love all these photos, and especially the lifesavers on the figures out on the sand. (Is “Loverpool” a conscious joke?)
