Day 37 – Rain, Museums and Shops

Yes, a wet day, again. This time Viv goes off to the Museum of Liverpool. Then we both entered the labyrinth that is Liverpool One, the mega mall of shops. Oh joy. I eventually buy some of the Crocs (I thought we were crocs dear?), bright lime green, nice. Oh, a two level Sports Direct, how nice. Let me outta here! A brief visit to the maritime museum to book a trip to see the old docks – all fully booked with school parties, oh well, it is that time of the year, I suppose. We also found the CRT office, adjacent to the info office and bought a spare BW key. A most pleasant chap who was very chatty, telling us all about the history of CRT taking on the running of the docks, well, all the land as buildings are privately owned. They just manage the water. They do need help – come on local business and Liverpool City Council! It’s a long walk to the toilets & showers plus there’s no (decent) pump out/elsan facilities. Still what they have done is marvellous.

We had a meal out tonight, all of 100 yards away, at the Pump House. We had a £5 voucher (just for going online and signing up). Their fish n chips were great and quite a good range of beers too.

More boats today. Norman & Leah on Brindley plus Maggie May, old travelling companions from Wigan. It is good to meet up with folk again.

An early night tonight. Our feet are killing us with 20,000 steps a day!

Off to visit both cathedrals and the radio tower tomorrow plus the Brazilian restaurant … . . maybe! 😎
