Our instructions were to be ready to lock up at 8am so we cast off at 7:20 in order not to be last in the que; we were second up. The wrench of leaving was made that much easier by enjoying the early morning sunshine.
As we left Albert Dock we passed a super yacht that came in overnight.
After a couple of hours we arrived at Litherland where there is full C&RT facilities and a Tesco alongside that enabled us to restock before taking the bus into Crosby. There are spectacular sculptures by Antony Gormley that stretch along Crosby beach. "Another Place" consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the foreshore, standing almost one kilometre out to sea.The "Another Place" figures - each one weighing 650 kilos - are made from casts of the artist's own body standing on the beach, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon.
And Dianne found one to cuddle!
Inevitably it started to rain so it was back onto the bus to cool up an evening meal aboard.
