Monday 13 October

We loaded the washing machine to take advantage of the free electric hook up in the dock and then took Max for a walk down river for an explore of the waterfront.

Jelly fish were spotted in the dock, when we looked beyond the plastic bags and bottles.

We walked past the Liver Building and noticed that when you look closely at the two birds, they have fronds in their beaks.

We loved this tunnel booking office that now sits beside the Cunard Building.

We returned Max back to the boat and we went off to visit the Maritime Museum which focusses on the loss of three of Cunard’s liners; the Titanic, the Lusitania and Empress of Ireland.

We were disappointed at Liverpool’s lack of illiterative links regarding the Litany of Liner Losses when we are used to the Hull Daily Mail ‘s headlines making much of Hull’s Triple Trawler Tragedy and Dunswell’s Double Decker Disaster!!

We returned to the boat for lunch and then set out again to visit Liverpool Tate where we studied the DLA Piper Series: Constellations which asks “Can abstraction change our perception of the built environment that surrounds us?” Quite a debate ensued between us as to what exactly we were being asked here.

After so much culture, we went and rescued Max and took him for a two mile walk up river to find the entrance from the Mersey into Liverpool Marina at Brunswick Lock.   To help appreciate how wide the entrance to the lock is, this is me standing in front of the top of one of the old lock gates…

It was getting dark by the time we got back and it had started to rain, so we scurried back on board, cooked tea and, instead of venturing out again, we kept warm by the stove rather than being able to enjoy a red sky at night as we did last night.
