Return of the Giants - 24 - 27 July 2014

After a popular visit in 2012 the giants returned to Liverpool - this time with the 'Grandmother'.

Small boy waving at large giant!

We had a fabulous view from our second floor office window.

Xolo was also there, taking a well-earned rest above. 

The little girl also took a rest in the sunshine with her parasol.  The yellow crane behind was very distracting so we've altered the picture to leave only the girl, radio and parasol in colour.

Grandma having her head examined!

A Bagpiper playing for charity also joined the crowds

It was certainly a very well attended event with every photographic device imaginable there!

Tegg's Nose

Revisiting Tegg's Nose after nearly a year and a half. As usual, a roasting hot, sunny day. We spent a long time on the first descent with lots of rain-drops on the foxgloves, Redstarts and a family of Stoats! We could have stayed there all day.
