Where I stayed
The Tin Can
What I did
Managed to keep the wheels on their bikes
The rain is on its way, so anoraks on, and off the go...Les is now starting to look jaded, being mother hen to 5 would be children is taking it toll.
The riding was going well, Gareth repeating the lyrics to the famous Gerry and the Pacemakers song. Rem was heading things up, and Simon ws lagging behind...He now had an apparent fondness for sheep! Maybe he has had too much time in Wales........The heavens opened, the boys were soaked to the bone...but they remain focused, they have the incentive of a cultural ferry boat ride across a rather chopy, murky looking Mersey River.
So the chaps board the ferry, and are shocked to find it is nothing like the Dover to Calais ferry. The height of the luxury is a covering, not preventing the harsh freezing wind, licking up off the mersey.WELCOME TO LIVERPOOL IN JULY.
Ferry ride over, the boys continue in the rain, to the camp site, which is rather nice. There is a turn on tonight, so entertainment is sorted. Caravan Club, eat ya heart out.
90 MIles today......Please Lord, bring the sun back.
