Litherland to Liverpool Docks

Last night was a rough night, with strong winds, thunder and hailstones. We set off later this morning as we didn't have to be at the top of Stanley locks until 1:00pm. However it was a wet and windy journey.

Moored at the top of Stanley locks awaiting the CRT guys to come and let us down. We have become friends with John on his boat, who we first met yesterday at Hancock’s swing bridge. As he has been through the docks a few times now we followed. With the now quite strong winds it was going to be an interesting journey, we had a lot of small waves! Jo was getting quite excited, for me not so having been down the River Thames to the sea on cruisers I have had worse, although not with Hadar, but she handled well and the engine coped really well with being opened right up to overcome the strong wind.

Seeing the Liver Building really tells you that you are in Liverpool.

We are now moored up on the pontoons in Salthouse Dock. We are here for a week and looking forward to seeing Liverpool. Jo has never been here, but I have, back in the mid 1970’s when I occasionally worked at the main telephone exchange here.
