Friday 9 June 2017 – New Brighton Mermaid Trail and other sights around New Brighton

Correction: an earlier version of this post said that the “Black Pearl” driftwood ship was off Marine Promenade, it is in fact off Tower Promenade.

It was a gloriously sunny day today here on Merseyside, so I took advantage of it by going to New Brighton to photograph the New Brighton Mermaid Trail which was unveiled in the Wirral seaside town a couple of day ago.  There are six of the fibre-glass mermaid sculptures, all the work of Barry Canning-Eaton and will be on display at various points around New Brighton over the summer.  Unfortunately I only managed to photograph five of them as I was losing energy fast with all the walking and my heart condition.  The sixth mermaid was too far to walk.  You can view all the photos I took on my FLICKR site and on YOUTUBE.

While in New Brighton I took some photos in Vale Park, including some wonderful sculptures of a unicorn and animals made out of wood.  I also took some photos of the Black Pearl driftwood ship that sits on the beach off Tower Promenade close to Vale Park.  You can view all the Vale Park photos on my FLICKR site, as well as the  Black Peal photos HERE.
