The Liverpool Eye
We have been meaning to go on the wheel for ages.
Last weekend we had dinner in Liverpool and decided to go and have a look.
There wasn’t a queue and as it was dusk, it seemed the ideal time to hop on.
We climbed into the capsule, which had commentary by a couple of local radio hosts, piped into it.
The background of this picture shows how light it was at the beginning, we watched the dark descend upon the city.
Each time the capsule went around, slowly, we watched the light fading and the darkness fall.
There were three turns of the wheel in total.
The view as darkness fell upon the famous skyline.
I don’t think we could have timed it any better.
That is why This Week I have loved the Liverpool Eye.
Have a lovely day!
Apparently it is National Vegetarian week, so to celebrate I thought I would show you one of my favourite vegetarian places .
The Egg cafe is in Liverpool City Centre, just off Bold Street. It is in the loft space of an old Victorian warehouse. Therefore, the journey up the stairs is not for the faint hearted!
When you finally reach the skinny purple door, an airy space is revealed. The decor is bohemian in style, which is fitting because the cafe also acts as an art gallery.
In the daytime there are great views of the city and in the evening, it twinkles by candlelight.
Students, artists, families, young old professionals, well just about anyone, can be found sitting at the tables, eating or wiling away the hours. I love this place because it is so relaxed, the staff usually have an air of mañana about them!
There are a selection of hot and soft drinks available but they do not have a licence for alcoholic beverages. Don’t panic though because you can take your own!!
That was embarrassing, clinking through the few shops we visited beforehand.
This is Miss G’s spicy bean burger, I had the Leek and Mushroom bake and himself enjoyed The Red Dragon Pie, but neither of ours were as photogenic in the candlelight.
Whilst it’s my favourite place to go, I do have one issue in that my choice is sometimes cold in the middle. However, I usually asked for it to be heated again and it is returned to me piping hot with a sincere apology. On Saturday, I was too hungry and just ate the cold parts, it did give me a bit of a heavy tummy.
However, this does seem to be unique to me because himself and the youngest polished theirs off in super quick time and both were fine. Perhaps I’m sensitive!
We were all too full for desserts but as always there was a huge array of homemade cakes available.
It is a great place and worth the climb up the stairs, even if you just go for coffee and cake, the people watching opportunities are abundant! Give it a try if you are ever in Liverpool and let me know what you think.
Have a lovely day x
