Liverpool – Monday 9th July

 

Life in the slow lane just now with father-in-law down for a visit, and very enjoyable it is too, apart from the weather that is.  Today’s wet weather option was Liverpool, much more to do and see than one day allows.  

A stroll around the docks, in the very brief bit of blue sky.

The Mersey, Birkenhead on the far bank

Maritime Museum, with it’s current Titanic exhibition is well worth the free entry.

The ornate and completely OTT table decorations of the White Star Line celebrate the different trades required to build the ships.  Can’t decide what this one is – some sort of steel rope it seems.  More here if it’s of interest.
