    divers in bottles and baking soda powered toys?

    non sibi sed omnibus
    By non sibi sed omnibus,
    Does anyone remember those divers you put in a pop bottle and by pressing the cork they rise or dropped in the water. There was also those submarines etc where i think you put baking soda inside them and it made them move in the water. i think the latter have surfaced?-sorfy about the pun though!!

    HORT
    By HORT,
    Does anyone know what all the road works are at the junction of Baldwin Street, Cotham Street, Ormskirk Street and Westfield Street? The permanent traffic lights have been removed and temporary ones installed. The balustrades have been removed and there is loads of fencing put up. I have not seen anything in the press. Anyone any idea?

    Parkgate

    Robbob2010
    By Robbob2010,
    This is the only coastal resort in Cheshire. We went for a ride out looking for the coastal wildlife but nothing much there but we did see a Peregrine Falcon snatch a Starling that was on it's own but it was too quick for me. Parkgate is a beautiful and quiet corner of the Wirral,wit spectacular views across the River Dee Estuary to the Welsh hills. The spring high tides are always an impressive sight when the water comes right up to the Parade wall.However it can sometimes mean that there are road closures depending on the height of the tide. Along the 1.5 mile stretch of the Parkgate Parade on the Wirral...restaurants,pubs,25 bedroom hotel,clothes shop,ice-cream parlours,chip shop, seafood shop, general stores and much more. The reedbeds & marshes of the Dee Estuary stretch out on your right, and the Welsh hills provide a spectacular backdrop. On Spring tides,especially when aided by northerly winds, much of what seems dry land is covered. Birds & small mammals, driven inland by the encroaching water, provide easy picking for raptors such as the Marsh Harrier.

    Burton Point, just north of the Welsh border here, is a sandstone outcrop behind which there are some Iron Age earthworks.There are, however, some interesting erosion patterns on the outcrop itself, and even the modest height gain provides a wide panorama of the Dee Estuary, from Queensferry right up to the point of Ayr.     Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr       Mr Trump in the back seat ...     Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Hundreds of Lapwings by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Hundreds of Lapwings in Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Tata Steelworks,Shotton by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Another flock of Lapwings,Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   More Lapwings again,Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Grey Heron. by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Grey Heron by Robbob 2010, on Flickr       In the distance over the other side of the Dee Estuary...   Duke of Lancaster Ship over the Dee Estuary by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     Parkgate, Neston,Wirral by Robbob 2010, on Flickr
