A Conversation for Wallasey, Merseyside, UK

you forgot the multitude of golf courses and driving (racing) up and down the prom avoiding all the learner drivers, the Wirral Show and the Motorcycle Races

And standing on the prom front on a windy day trying to avoid the waves as they come crashing up from the river/sea.

Also, the incredible sunsets over the Irish Sea, best viewed from Harrison Drive. I love Wallasey. Although if I won the lottery, I'd probably move to Heswall Hills!

I went to Guides in Harrison Hall. I made my promise on the sand dunes not too far from there - where one could see the sea and hills and the sky. Just during and after the promise ceremony, the sun set. If you know Guiding, you will know that the closing song to a meeting goes "day is done, gone the sun, from the sea, from the hills, from the sky"
The BEST place to make a promise, ever.

I live not far from Harrison Park. The views are fantastic from the top of the hills. I especially like to see the Welsh mountains in the winter, their tops covered in snow. It must have been a very moving promise ceremony, with the sunset crowning it all!
I recall taking the family to the park to view the solar eclipse a couple of years ago. Quite a crowd had gathered there. I'll never forget the moment that the birds became silent! Quite a spiritual moment.
