    Default The beach at the bottom of South Road

    Not sure where to post this, but late least year someone posted about whether anyone remembered how far the tide used to reach at the bottom of South Road in Waterloo, I replied that the sand used to reach up to the sea wall before the lakes were built, and to prove the point here is a pic, sorry about my legs (laughs)

    The pic was taken in 1969

    My ex lives in Sundene Lodge overlooking the lake. The views used to be nice, but now all you see is those stupid windmills and The Port of Liverpool.

    Got to say I love the Windmills. As well as the Iron Men. Though they make me feel inadequate

    No they look like mystical creatures from the deep when they are half immersed , i would have liked it if a few of them had been turned to look at us though ..

    Its because they are big and made of metal. Its like ships, I cant stand seeing rust on them and being so big. I have a fear of big things.

    I know what you mean. A lot of people think that way.
    My husband hates the well known photo of the Ark Royal, Birkenhead, he doesn't like the way the ship looms over the houses and appears as if it's gonna' come up the street

    My daughter when she was a toddler had a fear of billboard hoardings, it was a nightmare trying to take her shopping on the bus, I used to have to put my hands over her eyes everytime we passed them, which was quite alot, as she got older she explained it was because they seemed so big, I understand where she is coming from, she said there is no way she could go to USA and go to The Statue Of Liberty or Paris to The Eiffel Tower as it would freak her out. Blackpool Tower freaks me out even.
