A day at sea on the Waverley

Landscapes, Travel 7 Sep 15

Bought for £1 and fully restored to service the PS Waverley is the last sea going paddle steamer. She’s a beautiful ship and she sails from Liverpool on a day trip to Llandudno and Anglesey.

LIMF Summer Jam – Monday

LIMF 2nd night. As I said in my last post its great we have such amazing spaces for music. Some great DJs on last night. I was really hoping Norman ‘the cat’ Killen, who used DJ in the original Eric’s, would do a set. He didn’t but the main guys played some awesome tunes.
