My roots run deep with the grand old maritime city of Liverpool.
It being my paternal grandmother's birth place and despite moving away as a young adult, the allure and vibrancy of the city always drew her home.
Each Monday we would board the bus, and take the trip into the city to take care of the banking business for her bakery, and inevitably would always take the time to enjoy a ferry ride on the River Mersey.
Last October when I was home, my brother shared those nostalgic memories with us, by spending the afternoon at the Royal Albert Docks, a once vibrant, seafaring port importing and exporting goods and passengers to the 'new world' and beyond. The old warehouses have now been converted for modern day use, housing shops, cafes, office space and the city's tribute to their famous sons.....The Beatles Museum.
Liverpool remains a bustling metropolitan city, with breathtakingly beautiful architecture, that so effortlessly blends the old with the new.
