So this afternoon we took the "Ferry Cross the Mersey" to Seacombe Ferry and then the bus to New Brighton where there was a real seaside atmosphere. There were wonderful views on board the ferry and a great atmosphere with lots of families taking the journey across the water.
We had a lovely time sitting in Stephen's mother's garden watching Harry paint the gate and then eating with the family, admiring Tom's gardening and bike repairs, and Myra's delicious cooking. A gentle holiday sort of time. Wonderful.
