Today was a wonderful day. Slept in later than the others. The bed here is so comfortable I had a wonderful sleep. Had a good breakfast and then Barbara and I sat and started looking at family history. Happily a little while later her son Ian stopped by with his wife Tessa. I think after our discussion we will have a great visit from them in the next year. Lovely folks. Really hoping they will come along over.
We went down to a pub for Sunday lunch/dinner which was very nice. Then took a little tour around Wallasey and New Brighton. Saw the Laughland home, the Church, the Black Pearl, – see pictures, and we went down to the sea.
The Black Pearl is very fun. Some fellows went down by the sea and collected driftwood and made a ship model of the Black Pearl from the Johnny Depp movies. The first one they made some teenagers torched. The second one they made was swept out to sea in a storm. I guess now they are on number three or four. pictures will show you how big it is. Great fun really.
Afterwards we walked to Vale Park which has a band stand and a lovely view of the Irish Sea. . We had a cup of coffee/tea and a sweet. It was very nice there.
When we returned Barbara and I went back to working on family history. I learned a great deal from her and have some new information to put into my books and family tree. Found out about more Laughland cousins we have that I did not know about. Lots of exciting information.
