Gosh almost forgotten what's it like to go to bed early and not be woken by youths and fireworks but the peace last night was utter bliss. So no bleary eyed, half asleep Jameisons this morning and we set off for the walk to the Docks around 9ish to arrive at the maritime museum by 10am. Booked in for the Old Dock tour at 10.30am.

|The walls were built on the sandstone bedrock that underlies Liverpool. It was shaped to hold the wall and then dug away to increase the depth for the vessels.|
|The old and the new. (looks like a figure of a man but think it was just plastic bags)|
|You can see the shape better here.|
How could we top that but we did by going down to the Beatles experience. Again a few photos to show but one really needs to visit to get the full story. Needless to say with the story being told through a hand held cassette and head set, we were surprised when we emerged to find 2 hours had already gone.

|Ferry cross the Mersey. Hope to do this trip next week. Dark skies looming.|
|That looks a bit ominous.|
Exciting day tomorrow. Off to do the link and take up our berth, S3
And underneath the table where we had coffee, 2 young pigeons.
And a sight I didn't expect to see over the docks.
|Look how black that sky was.|
