    Default Lazy Days on and around the Wirral.

    Loads of Photos since its been a great week or so for weather. Some Liverpool shots here, But taken no further than actually on The Mersey, so I think they just about count!!

    Lazy days fishing:



    Even Lazier days watching....



    Ferry, cross the mersey....



    Woodside Ferry terminal. I believe thats Stanlow, Way off in the background...



    Lovely shot of the Cathedral.



    Finally! They stuck Liverpool on a boat and they're taking it away!!



    The famous One O'Clock Gun. Fired this towards Liverpool every Day at 1pm. Missed every bloody time!!





    Yet another Liverpool over the Mersey shot....



    The Echo Arena, taken from the Ferry.



    Wallasey Town Hall, from the Ferry (Me and the missus were married here..... Incidentally, this building was actually built the wrong way round in error. This should actually have been the front!




    ADVERTISING




    USS Empire State, again, taken from the Ferry.



    Views of Birkenhead & Liverpool from way up on Spooky Bidston Hill, Wirral







    Bidston Observatory. Used to be the timekeeper from which they set the time to fire the one o'clock gun... So the sign by the Urban Farm says.







    Tam O'Shantys Urban Farm, Bidston.







    Leasowe coast, in last weeks Gales.



    Finally (phew!) Seacombe Ferry Terminal.




    OK One last photo. I included this poignant pic because of the Irony. It may look like nothing, but until 6 Months ago, the last surviving U-Boat in the UK was situated here, next to the East/West Float. Now its being overgrown with Poppies. A truly sad statement.

    Great views! Shows the Wirral off well! If ever you want somewhere different to get some Liverpool views from, try the top of Argyle Street or New Ferry.

    It is good to see some views from Eastern Wirral too!
