An idyllic Sunday afternoon this in one of Liverpool’s loveliest places. When I was little Stanley Park was just ‘the park’ as we lived right next to the Walton side of it. And this past year I’ve been happy to renew my acquaintance with it as I’ve been spending so much time in North Liverpool.
Some of this time has been because my friend Rachael O’Byrne, as well as being a City Councillor, now has a job here where she’s doing all sorts of things to attract more people back into the beautifully restored park.
So here I am.
While she serves the steady stream of customers we put most of the world to rights. Lovely to see you Cally.
Anyway, I’m ages waiting for the 26. But as the bus stop is right by the Paisley Gates I’m usefully engaged by tourists getting me to take their photos in front of the ground on an array of phones, a couple of cameras and even one iPad. Glad to be useful!
Well done Rachael O’Byrne and everyone for Stanley Park today x
And halcyon? A lovely word you hardly ever hear being used. It means days like this.
