  1. you are lucky to have so many great places for kids so close to you!
    I have actually been to the Albert Docks, although it was that long ago museums weren’t free back then lol xxx

  2. This post brought back memories. I grew up in the Wirral and my grandparents lived there until I was in my early 20s. So I spent many a happy day at the Albert Docks. We used to love pulling funny faces in front of the “This Morning” window. I remember going to Chester Zoo too. We also spent a lot of time climbing the clay rocks at Thurstaston and walking on the walls eating ice cream at Park Gate! Hugs Mrs H xxxx
