Thursday afternoon I was early, but Stuart was ready. Supper was awesome. As was the chat. Who said one should never discuss politics! hahahahaha
Next day was spent pottering about.
Vini arrived Friday evening and we had another nice supper.
Saturday was spent in Southport. I needed to buy socks. My 1,000mile socks are not holding up. Unless motorcycle mileage counts 🙂 This gave me an excuse to see more than just the high street.
Found some sweet-potato pakora in the old market, and brought more home as it was tasty.
One thing that seemed all wrong, was the black-pudding for vegans. That has to be wrong on so many levels!!! How can a vegan ask for something that resembles the real one made of animal blood and animal fat?????
Supper was a fun event
The four of us enjoyed a variety of excellent dishes (many curries), followed by a home made toffee pudding 😉
The conversation and the wine flowed. Sign of the times? The conversation flowed more than the wine.
Sunday up to breakfast then the train to Liverpool.
We stoped off to see the “faces” in the beach. An art project for Remembrance Day. However when we arrived at the beach, the project appeared much further away than promised.
So back to the train station and into Liverpool’s St Georges Plateau, just in time for the “parade”.
Quite the parade. Especially after Toronto’s, where the number of veterans have dwindled to a dozen or less. There were hundreds of veterans in Liverpool. Multiple units. All three services, though mainly army.
Nice touch were the poppies raining down from the skies.
You can see pictures of the parades and Formby beach, courtesy of the liverpool Echo.
On the way back to the railway station, we stopped off for a cuppa.
I accidentally had a 77% gin. VERY smooth. Despite the strength. The label was “77”. And it was made in France. I should have taken a photo. Cannot find it online 🙁
Anyone out there know about it?
Back home for Stuart to feed us again. I swear I am putting on weight!
Monday saw Stuart off to work, and Vini off to the dentist.
I packed which took long enough for Vini to return and wave me goodbye.
They are good people 🙂
I am fortunate to know many good people.
