Flat me goes to Liverpool

As in the last post mom took flat me away to Liverpool.
The journey started in the mini bus, and took around two hours 

They parked up at Albert docks

And went on a boat ride across the Mersey, he had to be stowed away in a hand bag because no dogs are allowed on the boat

As soon as the ferry was away from the docks mom got him out.
No its not mom, she's taking the piccies 

The Liver building from the boat

This ones just for dad a ship that's a bar!

Hey a street with my name

How many George's on this one?

They ended up on a street called Hope Street at one end is the Liverpool Cathedral at the other Metropolitan Cathedral.

This is Liverpool Cathedral, Giles Gilbert Scott designed it at the age of 22. It was completed in 1978, and is the largest cathedral in Britain and largest Anglican cathedral in the UK and Europe.
The organ has a staggering 10,268 pipes.  

Half way along Hope street is a yes you've guessed it a pub, called
 The Philharmonic, The Beatles used to go there, it has not been touched in years and is in the art nouveau style. 

Then they walked to the other end, which has the Metropolitan Cathedral.
which is Roman Catholic, it is built in a circular shape and boasts the worlds largest stained glass window. which is all around the top. It was built in the early 1960's

Mom says its stunning inside, with all the blue stained glass.


Now this looks like fun he got to go on a "Wacker Quacker" its a thing that can go on the road and also in the water.

In yea go hehehe

Look at that, the man that did the talking is holding on to him!!


Well he had a great time, I've put him away, as mom has the real me, to take out now she back.

See Yea George xxx

Hey Georgie, in the first pictures I thought: What then is this for a small Welsh? Nevertheless, they are much bigger? Perfect deception! *lol*
Nice pictures! For somebody who does not know Liverpool, very interesting!
Lots of love

You are one lucky pupper. The real you gets to go an a pub crawl(though you did look kind of flat out on the floor there haaa!) while the flat you was going quackers in the water bus. With the common tater who seemd a good sort. Now on your pub crawl I hope you are doing just that George...a LOT of crawling...all those lovely dropped foodable to suck up and do you get a bonio to go with your guiness froth?

Wiry love Eric xx

That was quite a trip. It's a good thing the flat you went. The real you would have gotten very tired.
