Sunny Port Sunlight

It was the last day of the holidays for the monkeys, we've had a lot of fun this Easter .....

As it was yet another beautiful day we decided to go to the Wirral. We really wanted to visit the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight and then go for  a nice coastal walk but we got stuck in the gallery. We all absolutely loved it here. Fabulous Victorian pictures but we also loved the wonderful collection of Chinese porcelain and Wedgwood Jasper ware. There were plenty of trails for the monkeys to keep them occupied and the gallery is not too big for them to get lost (if anyone is worried that I let them roam around unattended, don't worry, they are very well supervised!). 

I could write down all the wonderful things that we saw but I'd rather just encourage everyone to go and visit and see for yourself. Here are some detail shots of the building itself. 

Afterwards we had a surprisingly lovely lunch in The Bridge Inn. It was truly the freshest and best prepared pub food I'd had in a long time. 

Nearby we stood still at the Hillsborough Disaster Memorial : 

Another 6 weeks and we'll have the summer holidays. I'm counting!
