David and I went to Liverpool to see our country's last remaining Aircraft Carrier on its final visit.

Old and New. The church is St. Nicholas, the white curved building is Atlantic Tower.

Ticket To Ride. Waiting for the tourists to board!

  1. Great set of photos. Nice to see the blue sky - you should have been wearing shades as well!
