A long walk around Silverdale
A long walk around parts of Silverdale we had never seen before, plus parts we had seen. R****** and A****** seemed to invent a game involving throwing a jumper up in the air, taking account of the wind (it was quite blustery up there) and trying to get the jumper to the other person. Hence the pictures of the jumper in mid-air.

New local walks discovered
Something good that came of the Covid-19 lockdown . . . me and the family had been exercising locally and discovered some actually fairly decent walks nearby, that previously we would have had no idea about. True, though: the weather had been amazing recently and so all the usually muddy paths had become baked dry. Hmmmmm.

Edinburgh, more stuff
I should explain . . . we had a plan today, or a vague plan: we did the bus tour thingy, which was great (using a ticket purchased yesterday) and got off at the Whisky museum stop (or whatever the hell it is . . . the top end of the Royal Mile) . . . so the plan was to go to the Camera Obscura thingy. But there was massive queues, and plus it was cold, wet and windy. So do we stand around queuing for hours in these conditions or do something else? We wandered up to the castle, just for the hell of it, and it was whilst we were up there that the boys had that realisation: we were really looking forward to going to the Camera Obscura thingy, but now we can't. And, so, understandably, they were a little miffed . . . but we made the best of it, headed for the National Museum of Scotland, and it was great. The boys mood perked up and it was all fine.

Trip to Liverpool
Hello. We made a trip to Liverpool today, partly to check out the Tate Liverpool gallery but also . . . Well, when did we last go to Liverpool? I dunno. Years and years and years. As a child, we used to visit my mum's parents in Wallasey, and sometimes we would make the trip across the Mersey to Liverpool. Was that really the last time? I'm thinking the last time might have been some time in the early 1990's, but there I'm guessing. The place was enveloped in this intriguing mist / fog thing, which sometimes hid / revealed distant buildings, as it saw fit. Yeah, anyway . . . gotta go . . .
