You know, I’m not an adventurous boater. I don’t want locks and challenges or the thrill of crossing an aqueduct on a narrowboat, I just want an easy life relaxing in beautiful scenery with wine.
But some people are far more daring than me and recently some members of our boat club ventured out to cross the Mersey in their narrowboats.
I thought they must be mad (although my husband would love it). The Mersey is a strong tidal VERY DEEP river and these organised trips are few & far between, they are weather dependent and led by a Pilot boat.
Setting off from the National Waterways Museum Wirral and heading off to moor up at Albert Dock in the heart of Liverpool.
Thanks to ©DougWildman for the fab photos.
I do agree there could be no better place to be moored up than at the Albert Dock in the heart of the city. They all agreed it was a fabulous experience and recommended it highly.
Is this something you would like to do?
