A Bracing Last Day In Liverpool

Whilst the city pleasures of Liverpool are indeed very tempting, I decided to leave them behind via the Mersey Tunnel opting for the bracing air of New Brighton Beach instead  …….
… and it did not disappoint!
……. and cobwebs that were remaining after Christmas were well and truly blown away …..
I do soooooooo love a tempest tossed sea, but it’s something I haven’t experience very often, so there was much to embrace  …….
It was wonderful, I just couldn’t drag myself away, as the waves grew higher and higher and then sea rougher and rougher, it’s a memory that will stay with me for years to come.
When I did eventually wander on to calmer climes, there was the opportunity to do a bit of Wader Watching at the Wirral Wader Festival Tent, with binoculars available and experts on hand to point out and advise …….

 ....... And finally, what trip to the sea wouldn’t be complete with  a little squandering of  your last few pennies in the amusement arcade ……
…… but, it wasn’t as much fun as it would have been with Darrell and Nigel, and that’s when I knew it was time I got back home, I missed them!
However, I have vowed that I would be back very soon and Darrell and Nigel will be with me, then we will do it all ….. because Liverpool really does have it all for three monkeys looking for adventure, excitement and culture ......!!!!
