It isn’t like St.Patrick’s Day at all – in fact if it wasn’t for the many flags of St.George that start to appear a few days beforehand you would not even know.
As a national day for
Today was tower day – not the off with their heads tower – but the radio city tower that hovers above the central area.
Just a fiver to go for views of the city that you really can’t get anywhere else.
We were escorted by a nice young man who gave us the rundown on the brief history of the tower – originally it was going to be the ventilation shaft for an underground garage and then after that didn’t proceed it was changed mid-build to incorporate a revolving restaurant, which did eventuate but closed down due to health and safety concerns.

We also visited the superlambanana again - this time for Paul
and one or Mitch - an Irish pub all on it's own - in the middle of Liverpool
We had had an email from Richard (nb Pendle Warter) whom we know from Aston Marina - he would be in Liverpool today and were we available to catch up for a drink - always Richard and very happy indeed we were to see you
We have to report that there was an escape attempt from Ferndale, but pleased tobe able to say that it was thwarted and the culprit is back under boat detention
|we suspected something was up when kangaroo wanted to go |
outside for some sun - completely out of character for him
|but he made a break for it - he has been practising his swimming |
in private - we didn't even know he could do this
|the wind took him away from his intended escape route and we|
were there to close in
|closer and closer he got - not at all happy about |
the impending capture, he turned his back on
