We were on the train back home from wherever it was we'd been when Viv's phone rang. Ann and John from New Zealand, expected visitors to ask us to join them for evening-meal at the local hotel. We did that, and it was lovely. The boys had steaks, I had duck, Viv and Ann had scampi, don't recall what John had. Then they came back here for coffee and conversation.
Today, we met up with them at the hotel, and although the day was slightly cold and windy, we took them on the train to Hamilton Square, down to the river, across the river on the world-famous Mersey Ferry and then up the hill to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King. A walk round this magnificent building. You don't have a choice. You have to walk round it, there's no other way to go. Along Hope Street to the massive Liverpool Cathedral, a modern stone giant in the style of bygone days. After looking around there, we stopped at their refectory for a light lunch before walking back down the hill, where a little shopping was done, before we walked past the Victoria monument on our way down to the Albert Dock development before taking the ferry and train back to Bromborough. And in just over an hour, it will be our chance to entertain them to evening-meal at our house. It's just starting to get dark now; it will be dark an hour earlier tomorrow as we are finishing summer-time/daylight-saving, so we'll be 13 hours behind the time in New Zealand. I have no idea when the U.S. change their clocks.

It sounds like my trip to Mainz with dragonfly - we cathedral hopped, and despite it being her first step into a church this millenium, she was a great guide!

US daylight saving: Time reverts to standard time at 2:00 a.m. on the last Sunday of October. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.
So today! Or tomorrow if you actually live there LOL!

Close enough. I knew one of them had scampi. But you're right. I remember now, the fishcakes were enormous, like tennis balls.
Or do you remember the joke about the bullfighter?
