Vistas and visions of Liverpool

View  of the Pier Head and the  visually stunning waterfront.

 

I thought I'd let the camera do the talking showing Liverpool at it's very best.        It's been a busy few weeks around our beloved city.

 The Three Queens sailing majestically up The River Mersey for Cunard's 175 Anniversary  Celebrations.  See the vision of The Red Arrows Aerobatics Display team.

The Queen Mary berthed at The Pier Head Liverpool.
 



Vision of the three original Queen Liners


After the spectacular Cunard celebrations then came

The 2015 International  River Mersey Festival with the Tall Ships sailing into port.
Majestic Tall Ship in full sail entering the glorious Liverpool Bay.

 


Berthed in the famous Albert Dock.


Sailing past The Royal Liver Buildings. Notice the also famed Liver Birds atop each tower.

 

So here I sail away leaving some wonderful VISIONS of my beloved city Liverpool, I do hope you have enjoyed learning more about my home town.

 

Many thanks to the veritable Denise for devising ABCW, who, at present is VROOMING around The Isle of Man with her husband Jon, and enjoying The TT Races!

 and also to Roger our most valued administrator..

 We too,  thank him for what he does, so valiantly!

Best wishes,

  6. Well done, and you didn't call a ship a "boat." Congrats.

  12. Thanks for all your kind comments. I am rightly proud of,
    my beloved city, it has served me well over the years.
    Liverpool is oozing with lots of talent and humour and
    who could forget our beloved Beatles, the song 'Ferry across the Mersey',
    by Gerry and the Pacemakers.... Golden memories indeed.

    Best wishes to my ABCW and blogging friends,

    Di xx

  16. A great set of photos - a friend of mine set off to see the Queens but could get nowhere near so ended up at Ness Gardens.

  17. Thanks for your comment. I hope you are not disappointed but Hansje Brinkers who put his finger in the dyke did not exist. If a dyke leaks so much that water is getting through it then there is only one thing you have to do and that is to get in a boat as soon as possible. You can never stop water to break through a dyke. The story is invented by an American woman, and it is unknown in the Netherlands.But it's a nice story!
    Best regards, love, Di!
