Christmas Cruises at the National Waterways Museum - Ellesmere Port, Wirral
We were invited back to the museum to give their Christmas cruises a send off as they set off up the canal and to play again to welcome them back on their return.
The day was sunny and, for the time of year, not too cold and as earlier in the year we were made very welcome with lots of cups of coffee and tea to keep us going.
You can get more information about the museum from their web site at Waterways Museum.

The Band Plays On
Engrossed in the music no one notices that everyone has gone and the band plays on into the sunset.
