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!
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 …….Nigel would have loved it!!
Then I noticed the romantic old shelter on the promenade, and my mind drifted to the wonderful tales it could tell of stolen kisses, fish and chips eaten in newspaper and of families, friends and couples just sitting and taking in the view, I have to admit, it made me go quite misty eyed and gooey, which is usually Darrell's prerogative!!
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 ......!!!!
