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!
