|At the station with Dawn, Dave and a new friend! Sadly he is no longer with us.|
|Clipper leaving the docks.|
We caught the hop on hop off bus again, but this time we got off at different points.
As well as the anglican cathedral we also visited the Roman Catholic Cathedral as well. It was much simpler. Unfortunately we didn't get there in time to visit the crypt underneath.
One morning as we were leaving the docks this clipper was on the move and we watched her turn and go out on to the Mersey. We found it quite exciting. Maybe Gill and Alison were less thrilled!
One of the places we were told on the bus to visit is the gents toilets in the Philharmonic Diner. Last time we didn't make it but this time we went there for a drink, then Alison and I waited ages outside for a gentleman to come out, only to find it was Paul and he was the only one in there! You can see below how ornate it was.

We finally left Liverpool on Friday, Thursday was too windy!
We spent the weekend at Litherlands and on Monday we arrived here in Maghull.
Yesterday friends Julia and Ralf from Omega, who we met in Dewsbury, came to see us, driving nearly 2 hours to get here! They are about to sell their house and move on the their boat! So we went out to lunch and had a good old natter!
This afternoon we are off to the laundrette.
We now have about 10 miles of canal, if we don't do any locks, to move up and down until 14th December as we are booked into St Marys Marina at Rufford. This is where Falcon will be staying when we travel to Plymouth for Christmas.
