The tide was out again over breakfast, the same as yesterday evening, but incredibly it sped in by the time I went to check out (photo above is with the tide in).

The landscape soon began to change from beautiful mountains, to the more usual roads we are used to seeing. We carried on until we went through the toll tunnel and into Liverpool.

my seasickness incident down at St Ives. Thankfully, you can't feel the Joker boat really move much at all on the water. It is also a lot more spacious than I was expecting. The room sizes are generous and it has been decorated to a really high standard.

Whether it is because of the long journeys, or getting soaked in Cardiff the other day, or even the rain that has just begun, my back pain has started up badly today. I've managed to find a sweet shop on Albert dock that sells paracetamol so I stocked up and picked up some more ibuprofen later in the day when we popped to Tesco to pick up some sandwiches, sushi and salad for dinner.
As I was washing up after tea, I saw a couple of young lads right outside. I see a bucket, which they proceed to fill with water from the dock. Then I spot a bag of ice and sure enough they start to film themselves doing the ice bucket challenge going one step further and jumping into the water in the dock after tipping the iced water over the head first.
We tried to get the kids to bed before GBBO, but Miss T could see the TV through the mesh on her Koodi bubble cot and we heard her say a loud 'wow' when she saw the cake in the starting credits of the programme so in the end all 3 of the kids stayed up to watch Iain bin his baked Alaska.
There's lots to see and do around the Albert dock itself, and lots more in the rest of Liverpool. The friendly car park attendant strongly recommended the main museums so I'm hoping my back pain will hold out enough to be able to do that tomorrow.
