I just can't help commenting on all your photos, Lesley. Can't help myself.

Did you go for a swim in the dock?

It was too expensive whoelius,! The price went up recently to £75 an hour and as I was becoming addicted to it I had to seek help. :-((

Unusual dockside building, Lesley - or are those pillars a common sight in Liverpool's docklands?

I am more familiar with solid practical warehouse type buildings in the labour intensive areas of the docks - this looks more like some sort of apartment block, with all those ornate arches?

Warm wishes, Hazel

You are right Hazel the warehouses were converted many years ago into beautiful apartments. The Albert Dock was the first to be converted followed by other warehouses along the seafront belonging to various old docks. Most of them are grade II listed buildings and are a hub for the Liverpool tourist trade. The Doric pillars are used in most of the docks.

Best wishes, Lesley
