A real sea fret descended on the Wirral, though this didn't stop us spotting the amazing Razzle Dazzle 'Snowdrop' makeover crossing over from from Woodside to the Pier Head.
and what a backdrop - can't wait for the three Cunarders to descend on Liverpool in May - the Liver Building will be dwarfed.
then it was a hop and a lift up onto the old Liverpool tram and a trip back in time down to the Birkenhead tramway museum
of course Mum remembers them first time round!
and I just love the old Egerton Bridge
so then it was a quick shimmy over to West Kirby and lunch with live performance by Sam Wise, at the lovely Tanskey's.
then an impulse decision to eat even more, and zoom over to Parkgate for some of Nicholl's AMAZING ice cream, also brought us into a little patch of sunlight . . . but you can see the mist rolling in over the Irish Sea ahead!
and there's no hiding the evidence !!!
But later, back in West Kirby on a walk around the Marine Lake, it was quite eerie in the chill damp mist with not even a glimpse of the Welsh hills just over the Dee estuary.
