A Walk on the New Brighton Promenade
We needed to stretch our legs and were getting restless for an adventure to headed to the New Brighton Promenade on the tip, top right corner, of the Wirral peninsula, overlooking Liverpool.
This is a lovely paved walking path that follows the Mersey River. The waves were in full force today, because it was rather windy!
Along the route is an old battery called Fort Perch Rock, which is a coast battery defence.
The boys were pretty excited to learn there were palm trees growing everywhere, too!
Further along the trail, there are great views across the Mersey to the Liverpool waterfront!
But the best part of the trip was seeing an entire pirate ship made out of driftwood and left on the beach as public art and as a place for people to play!
