Off for the summer! No idea where we going, to or fro... For now, over-night stop at our usual spot.
Ted opening the lock. He took the first and last pictures.

At Digby Bridge again. Dinner is being served too!!!
Finally done it, I've moved. I wanted to take more pictures of the morphing of my possessions into crates etc, but there was so much to think about.... But here I am, on the canal.

Going round Liverpool last Saturday: The Albert Dock and Jamaica Street. One of the last warehouses still untouched in the city centre.

That was Monday. Had a great day visiting the wine maker, tasting wine and then a quick tour up above in the Alps.

This area was a slum some people fought bitterly to save. It took 30 odd years for the whole process to unfold, but eventually some was knocked down, some restored and the new stuff is freshly built on top of an old car park.
The construction of the new metro was quite hazardous. At one point, they pierced the bottom of an underground stream and gravel pit, which drained out, and a big hole appeared in the street above it. Apparently after that they were a bit nervous when digging the tunnel in the piles of the old bridge.
I love the way the city is layered here. When I lived here I never noticed...!
