We arrived in Liverpool very early, long before we were even awake. In fact when we pulled back the curtains, we were already tied up and alongside. This earlier arrival was also coupled with an early departure with all aboard by 2:30 so after a quick breakfast in the MDR we set of to explore on foot. Unfortunately, it’s not as long as we would have liked here but it was a case of trying to make the most of it.
So soon after we were given clearance to disembark which was just after 9:00, we set off to explore. A very nice visit Liverpool representative gave us a route which was based on the fact we needed to be back early in the afternoon. He suggested we start with a walk along the waterfront and then head inland to Liverpool Cathedral then on the way back spend a little longer in the Albert Docks area.
This visit has turned out to be a taster for us as we have discovered there is plenty to see and 5½ hours just isn’t going to do it justice. We were back on board for lunch in the Windjammer and once again with the weather being so nice, we sat outside and enjoyed the sail out of Liverpool. As soon as we put to sea we made our way to the Solarium at front of the ship and managed to bag a couple of beds right at the front looking forward.
Tomorrow we are in Greenock, the weather is supposed to be turning and we have no plans to do anything.
