Cat at Cat Cafe

Cat Café

Life is slowly getting back to normal. On Saturday, pubs, cafes, and restaurants could open again in England. While it was so much talk about pubs, especially on social media, it was mostly ignored that small businesses can open their doors to customers for the first time in months. We’ve decided to go to the […]

Knowsley Safari Park, June

After a few months in lockdown, we were finally able to visit Knowsley Safari Park, in the last day of June. I was so excited to visit them again. From this weekend the lockdown will ease ever more in England (Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland go at different speeds). We planned to have a picnic […]

Monkeys with keeper

Knowsley Safari Park, March

As it was a lovely day last Thursday, we went to see the animals at Knowsley Safari Park. As usual, it was great. We did not go to the foot safari as I was not feeling good, so we only went to the drive-through safari, where I could stay in the car. I have a […]

Monkeys on other people's car

Knowsley Safari Park, February

Yesterday we went to Knowsley Safari Park. We’ve had a wonderful time, as always, and today I’m sharing a few highlights, including from the bird of prey display and the sea lion show. As usual, this is a picture heavy post, so prepare for lots of cute animals. You might remember last month’s stand-off with […]

Stand off with the Rhinos

Knowsley Safari Park, January

This month’s visit to Knowsley Safari Park was one of the best so far. It was quite eventful with a couple of the animals annoyed and not wanting to move. I will talk about that a bit later in the post. Firstly, the drive through the park started with some donkeys (or I should say […]

Whistler - Thames Police

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city is a special exhibition at Sudley House, a lovely small museum in Liverpool. I visit Sudley House regularly as their special exhibitions are usually fascinating. In 2017 I saw the exhibitions the 1930s and Transformation, and in 2018 I went to see Fashion from the 1950s, and Costume Drama […]

Knowsley Safari Park – December

Now it’s time to show pictures from Knowsley Safari Park, in December. I just love these monthly posts and I love going each month to watch the animals. It’s so relaxing and wonderful to see them. Our tour started with us looking at these camels, walking on the tarmac towards some other cow-like animals (that’s […]

Lions enjoying the sun

Knowsley Safari Park – November

I had a very busy month, but still managed to see the animals at Knowsley despite them changing the opening times. Now it is closed Monday and Tuesday, and the last entry to the park is 3pm, unlike the summer time when it is 5 or 6. This time we took the car friendly route […]

Close up with Lion at Knowsley Safari Park - October

Knowsley Safari Park – October

Are you ready for lots of pictures with the animals at Knowsley this month? I’ve shared 28, but some are with the spacious fields the animals have, just to show what great conditions they have there. To have good pictures of the animals I need to take the DSLR with me, otherwise, the zoon on […]

Victorian Lecture Theatre

Liverpool Medical Institution

I went to the Liverpool Medical Institution many times since I moved here because they always seem to organize very interesting activities for events such as Light Night. This month I booked tickets for the tour they were offering with the Heritage Open Days event. They offer tours for groups at low prices, but that […]
