We're on the starboard side, looking out over the Mersey, across to Birkenhead, watching the odd vessel chug by. A brightly painted "party boat" called the Snowflake, has just passed by and we returned the waves of a boisterous, but good-humoured party on board.
Our ship is due to depart Liverpool, in around three hours’ time, so we'll be back up on deck to watch as our floating home slips its moorings, turns around and heads off towards the mouth of the Mersey estuary, and back into the open waters of the Irish Sea.
I mentioned in my
previous post that it's Mrs PBT's birthday today, but we will leave the
posh dinner until tomorrow, in order to experience
properly tonight's departure. In the meantime, there's a few more steps to clock up, and a beer or two to be had.
No more posting now until we reach Southampton, and then it will only be a quick one. It's nice though, just to relax and savour the moment, especially after the year we've just had and the manic period at work over the past six months.
So, for the time being, a fond farewell to Liverpool, even though we didn't see that much of it!
