Last Autumn I visited Liverpool as a guest of Pete from the Big I Am who had kindly arranged for us to a couple of venues including that ancient pub The Pilgrim from which wayfarers set of for the New World. Patrick from France and his artist girlfriend Christiane came too, and we had a wonderful time. I remember a particular bowl of meat stew in the local tea room was enjoyed, and Pete cooked us a lovely chicken dish as well. Here's a pic from when we went to Birkdale Sands. That's an Anthony Gormley in the sea.
