The marathon day Monday, March 25th continued after the football tour - Russell and June picked us up by car and we started our sightseeing.
Key words for today's activities were:
  1. Starbuck base - Breakfast
  2. Anfield - Liverpool FC tour
  3. Viewpoint - Everton Park - Sightseeing
  4. Sefton park - Palm house
  5. Woolton - sigthseeing - Lunch
  6. Shopping
  7. Waterfront
  8. Albert Dock
  9. Pump House - Dinner 
One and two were finished - and I left it entirely to Russell to decide where the tour should go now.
First stop was on Everton Hill in the Everton Park - a modern park from the 1980s. The name Everton is derived from a Saxon word "eofor" which means "wild boar living in forests" - so there must have been wild pigs up here.
From here we had a great view of Liverpool:

A bit cold on top of the hill, and WOW! - snow like in Norway:

Then we headed further to Sefton Park and the beautiful romantic Palm House

Inside the Palme House blossomed the most beautiful orchids and other exotic plants - birds were chirping and singing under the glass ceiling - and the fragrance was lovely:

Then off to Woolton - A charming old village, independent until it was merged with Liverpool in 1913:

Allerton Road - a popular place for pubgoers - But we went for hot chocolate and coffee this time in Let's Eat Woolton:
After refreshments, we were ready for a round of shopping - it was especially Magnus, who was keen on renewing school garments a bit. - On the way to the shopping area of ​​Liverpool One, we passed Victoria Monument:
After a not too exhausting shopping round, we went down to The Waterfront, for photography and dinner:
