Formby sand dunes

We went at Formby – Sefton’s Natural Coast.

Laura mentioned it and today we went there. Here is the parking lot near the sand dunes.

It looks great, but it was a little windy and we didn’t stay too long. We liked the walk on the beach and the sand dunes are nice, so we will definitely go again, maybe with Festus. There is a very large beach with sand dunes near pine woods.

Laura mentioned in the morning here is water, but during the day the sea withdraws. Unfortunately we were unable to reach the sea because there were some mesh waters.

This dunes were near the parking lot. The sand was loose, but for a small photo-shoot it didn’t matter.

In the woods there are 5 routes, but we didn’t try them today. Next time I’ll drag hubby on the “red squirrel walk” trying to get a glimpse of the lovely squirrels.

I wanted a picture with Lion railway locomotive, but it was too crowded, so I got a picture with the kids train.

Overhead Railway motor coach, the only example that survived is on display. This coach is one of a batch built between 1892-1899 and it served until it closed in 1956 and was preserved by British Railways.

If you visit Museum of Liverpool you should try on the helmets, it’s so funny.

In the football section Laura discovered an exhibit from Romania, a bill from 2000. The description was funny: “biggest bill we ever paid: 1,5 million ‘things’ “.

In city

Yesterday we went for a walk in the city. I am very happy with the weather in UK. As you can see in the photos, the weather is mild. I can put on a skirt and of course, my thin jacket from Kenvelo.

This pictures were taken on The Lime Street station. In the 1st picture I was paying attention to a joke made by a rail-station worker.

I am sure I will not love everything in UK… but so far I can’t find something bad :))

Museums

Yesterday we visited Merseyside Maritime Museum and International Slavery Museum. They are in the same building. I liked the Maritime Museum. The story of three ships that sank are very moving. In 3 years (1912 – 1915) three ships sank: Titanic, Lusitania and Empress of Ireland. There is a depict of the people that died and the people that survived in the Titanic.
