two weeks later than planned and not quite where we were supposed to be going…
at the end of september fizz popp and poppy were off on the train up to chester – well three trains, but who’s counting? well, fizz and poppy because that’s how many trains they had to catch – anyway, i’ll hand you over to the two travelling popps;
hello all *waves*, me and poppy were off to chester (as it was the cheapest place to go with a couple of weeks notice…)
after arriving at the pp at about two, the afternoon was spent looking around chester.
at bedtime we snuggled down with a paddington book
on tuesday, we caught a train to liverpool. it was a bit blustery and occasionally rainy so we didn’t go too far from the waterfront and museums – but first we went to see the beatles
we’d got a day ticket (£5.60 for a day’s train travel around merseyside) so had to go somewhere else – we chose new brighton. it was still very very blustery, but we had a walk down to the sea – then a walk back to the train station – very exciting…
the next morning, wednesday, we’d planned on going to ellesmere port, but after a couple of cancelled trains, decided to spend the morning in chester
after lunch we decided to go on the train. our first stop was west kirby. we had a walk down to the sea – then a walk back to the train station – very exciting…
…then we popped back to liverpool
we finally got to ellesmere port on thursday. we’d forgotten that it was quite a long walk along a busy road to the canel museum
after getting back to the train station (via a subway under a big roundabout – with the words ‘don’t look behind’ graffitied on the pavement *walks even faster*) – we went up to port sunlight, which is always a lovely place to look round. the first stop was the art gallery where we had a drink and no cake (£4.50 is a bit steep for cake with banana in).
we definitely did not forget to take any photos, see…
we then walked through the rose garden smelling the roses then had a look in the garden centre where they were getting ready for chrimbles *groans*, then caught the train back to chester.
we decided to get the first train(s) home the next morning as the weather was going to be atrocious!
a very exciting mini popps minibobs as you can see…
on the plus point we’ve still got our other holibobs (near liverpool) to look forward to sometime next year, which fuzzy is hoping to go on.
until next time, byeeeee *waves*
