Old docks, Liverpool

We’ve been to Old docks. The tour was amazing! We’ve learned so many things about Liverpool and its crucial importance in the World’s commerce and development.

The docks are situated underneath L1. So, under the restaurants, hotels and great shops we were able to see a small part of such an important historic place. The old dock was the first enclosed wet dock in the world and it changed the commerce by sea. It was a revolutionary concept and it started the development of the Liverpool area.

The guides are very keen to make it a great experience and they gave us a lot of information and there is a Q&A section, at the end of the tour. It was interesting to hear the questions of the others participants, all Liverpudlians._MG_6105

It’s great, we both enjoyed it very much and we plan to take the tour again.

Mother’s Day

I am a rottweiler mum, so hubby surprised me with the greatest gift:md_01

A close-up with the writing, so you can see it better. I really love this T-shirt.

On the back of the T-shirt there is a picture of my boy.

Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing. The cupcakes aren’t very red, but I’m happy with it because I didn’t put any food coloring, just 2-3 spoons of beetroot juice.

Spaceport and Star Wars

On Saturday we went to Spaceport to visit the museum and to see some of the characters from Star Wars. Luckily I read the local newspaper every time I get it and I saw the event a few days before the weekend.ssw_01

We saw R2-D2 while we queued in front on the museum.

Aayla Secura, the Jedi Knight and hubby. This picture was better than the 1st one…in witch she and some stormtroopers arrested hubby…unfortunately that one is too blurry. Maybe I was too emotional to see him arrested.

So, I had my Earth earrings. It was only appropriate considering the occasion.

Spaceport is a nice museum, but I think is more suitable for families with children. The planetarium show was interesting and the exhibits for kids are really great, very funny.

The simulator flight was very nice too. It was crowded, but we didn’t wait too long to get in.

This scale is very funny. Start with Jupiter and finish with Uranus.
