I just had to make a pit stop in Liverpool before moving on to Scotland to see where the Mersey Beat all got started which sparked a creative explosion that was felt all around the world. This was ground zero for the classic rock that was spawned out of the 60’s and 70’s. Before I hopped on the Beatle Bus I toured the city.

DUKE OF WELLINGTON – In the distance, you can see him on top of the pillar behind the horse statue. The statue of Wellington was made by melting down one of the cannons captured from Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo.

Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout, a pretty nurse is serving poppies from a tray, and though she feels as if she’s in a play, she is anyway. (roundabout in song)

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see, it’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out, it doesn’t matter much to me. Let me take you down cause I’m going to…

This is the house where John lived with his aunt Mimi until he hit it big with the Beatles in 1963.

The house was donated to the National Trust by Yoko Ono, and is now a protected property.

    Awesome journey. I want to hear all about it. Plan to come diving with me at 1:30 on the 12th. I have to arrange the planets so a trip occurs. Will write again during daylight hours. All for now…Greg

    Many Thanks Greg,
    Can’t wait to see your ship, Cap’n. Glad to know you have evaded the giant scuttle all these years. I’m not sure who was scuttlehead and who was scuttlebrain.

    Hey Melinda,
    Follow away! I haven’t done the twitter thing, but there should be some fun stuff coming up over the next nine months which will span South America, and carry on to Europe for the Spring and Summer. I will probably finish up in the UK and Ireland for the Fall.
