We decided that over the bank holiday weekend we would head inland instead of to the coast where a million other people were headed. It turned out to be a great idea.
Not too far from us, across the Mersey is the Leeds to Liverpool canal. It is a whole different world from that of the city centre. Peace and quiet. Just a couple of canal boats and a few people walking their dogs.
Great views, sunshine, birds singing, barges and the odd friendly fox or two.
Such a wonderful place to go and unwind after a truly hectic week for both hubby and me.
Rounded off by a pub lunch. It was such a treat to be able to just pop in and have a drink and a bite to eat. I felt kind of normal!!
