This weekend was amaaaaazing! The weather was gorgeous (I know! bananas, right?) and the BF was here, so of course, I was in a fantastic mood.
On Friday night he came over and I cooked pasta for dinner and we watched the rest of season 1 of How I Mt Your Mother. It’s his favourite American sitcom, and I like it, but I’m still on team Big Bang Theory. Hardcore.
Saturday we got up and went for a walk. First we went to Greenbank Park, which is across the street from me. I had some bread in the fridge that was about to go bad (it hadn’t yet but I’d had it for awhile and figured I needed to either eat it or toss it, and since I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat it, I needed to get creative) and so the BF and I went to feed the ducks in Greenbank Park!
Alas, the ducks were few and far between and as soon as we threw a few pieces, these guys showed up:
Yeah. Huge, hungry geese. They were sooo close to us and they’d just stand there, beaks open, waiting for food. It was kinda funny. So yeah, we feed the geese and then we went to another park close to my dorm, called Sefton Park.
This is a building in Sefton Park:
Outside the Palm House is the reason we went to Sefton Park in the first place: A Peter Pan statue. There are seven statues of Peter Pan in the world: One here in Liverpool, one in London, one in Belgium, one in the US, one in Australia, and two in Canada.
Since I am a major dork and LOVE Peter Pan, I had to go, obviously.
After spending some time there, we walked back to the dorm and got his car to go to St. Helen’s, which is really close to Liverpool. It had been a big mining community until the colliery closed in 1991. The town was chosen as 1 of 7 in the UK to partake in a program called The Big Art Project which was a program which would allow the town to commission a piece of artwork.
They commissioned this sculpture, called “Dream:”
The area leading up to the statue is really pretty. It was a 10 minute walk:
So we spent a little time there. We’d seen this sculpture from the M62 motorway a billion times but didn’t know what it was until I got a Liverpool guide book and it happened to be in there. So now we know!
And here’s us after our walk:
