Another Day Out

Went over to Liverpool today, and went for a wander down to Albert Dock. It was quite cold and blowy, but the sun was shining and it was quite pleasant.
Went round the Dock, then onto the river side (was going to take a picture of Billy Fury's statue - love him - but he was festooned with dying flowers which had been laid on him for his 70th birthday a few weeks ago, so I will do it next time maybe), and round to the Echo Arena. They have moved the giant wheel there from the park where it was before.
Didn't expect to get a go on it (husband doesn't like to pay for things he thinks are a rip off), but it was only £5 each for pensioners (sadly the girl on the ticket booth didn't argue, just believed we were old!), so we went on it. All I can say is "WOW", fabulous, and £10 well spent. Took some pictures, although they are not as good as they could be as they are obviously taken through glass, but not bad just the same.

  1. Never seen pics of Liverpool before, great. Yes my DH is the same does not like to be ripped of, but I don't mind if I really want it, just like a woman. Also no argument when we want pensioners discount. LOL
