It was our sons Birthday last Monday so a trip to Liverpool was planned to correspond with his celebrations. It felt like years since we had seen him when in fact it has only been since January. We Skype every week or more and phone and text everyday but it is not the same has holding him in your arms for a hug or two. I know… I’m a big softy.
Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant in the heart of Liverpool. Sea Bass and vegetables, yum
For me, squid ink pasta with scallops and cod in a rich peppered sauce. Although very tasty the sauce did overpower the delicate flavours of the fish but I still loved the meal. I’ve never had squid ink pasta before but I shall certainly try it again in the future.
A cold and extremely wet day at Albert Docks.
Despite the weather we still had a great time.
Côte Bistro in the centre of Liverpool was by far the best restaurant we went too. Could not praise the service and the food enough. Needless to say we sat inside.
Côte Bistro and a terrific breakfast, Happy Birthday Son.
John and Yokos Peace bedspread at the new Liverpool Museum at Pier Head, Liverpool Waterfront, absolutely fabulous and free to enter.
A little blurred I think from excitement at seeing the train, I so love stream trains and this was “Lion”, the first luggage train to run from Liverpool to Manchester. A better picture and information can be found here
Needless to say a brilliant time, the shops oh my goodness and they do not close at twelve! After a good stock up on essentials for France it was time to return to the Perigord.
Thank you so very much Adam for putting up with your old mum for a few days. You are loved lots and lots.
