The children and I took a stroll around West Kirby boating lake one Saturday afternoon whilst Lou did the shopping. It was cold, with a northerly wind blowing, although this didn’t put the kids off wanting ice cream! Although, to be honest, there is never a bad time to have ice cream!!
It has to be said that Grand Central Terminal in NYC is one of the most impressive stations I have ever been inside. In fact many of the stations that I have visited in the USA are grand old buildings including Union Station in Washington D.C., and 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. If the rest of the mainline stations are like this across the USA, then I might have to try and travel by railroad more frequently.
Fireworks are guaranteed to bring out the child in most people- cooing at large bangs and bright lights! This particular shot was taken during a firework display to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Liverpool – only a year before Liverpool was to celebrate being voted European Capital of Culture.
If you haven’t visited Liverpool or the North West of England I would highly recommend you take trip to see us soon!
