Yesterday at about 9we were let through bridge 9 by BW people and we were on our way into Liverpool. The 9 mile, 2 swing bridge and 6 lock journey was in cold and blustery conditions. It took us about 5 hours, which was longer than expected because when we arrived at the top of the first 4 lock flight down into the docks the BW keepers had been called away to a bridge failure somewhere else. They finally showed up and we descended into the dock then ran along the new link cut which takes he boat along in front of the Three Graces and Liver Building, then through the maritime museum area and into Salthouse Dock. I didn't know where to point the camera next! Everywhere you look seems to be a photo opportunity Once in Salthouse Dock our berth awaited us. Due to the wind I had decided to nose into the berth rather than try and reverse.
Today we started to explore the area and decide what we want to do to get the best out of our visit.
