Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Reflections of Liverpool

 Blisters have now finally healed and this week I visited Liverpool in the North West of England. It is many, many years since I was last there so there was much to see. Liverpool was a large port and much of its history is based in that area. Nowadays, as in many of our cities, the docks have gone and the warehouses have been transformed into fancy apartments, hotels and museums.

 Around the Albert dock is the Maritime Museum, which includes the Slavery Museum and close by is the Tate Art Gallery


Close to the Albert Dock is the Open Eye Gallery which is great for reflections.

 This is the Museum of Liverpool overlooking the River Mersey.

  6. Am glad the blisters healed! That museums and hotels have replaced the docks, does that mean the industries in Liverpool fared well? Interesting that they call the cart museum the Tate - just like in London... About your reply to the $5 bill - I didn't know that saying, but I will remember this one! (great to know for kids:) )

  13. Quite a mix of ultra modern and historic buildings. No doubt there would be so much to see if you had the time to explore further.

  15. A lot of glass makes for great reflections. I prefer the older brick and stone structures.
