Hiking on the Thurstaston Common (Reserve)
Upon arriving at our friend's house, John and Heather Leal, (pictured on left on hike) in Wirral (near Liverpool) we had a cup of tea and then drove out to the Thurstaston Common (Reserve). We had our hiking shoes on and did some brisk walking on the trails. We were high enough to look over and into the province of Wales. The water you see in the photo is the Irish Sea.
The unusual mushroom you see here on the left is poisonous, but quite pretty :( One thing we noticed about the colored rock and some of the formations, it's a shade lighter than what you would see in Sedona, AZ. The climb-able rocks were also similar, but our climbing skills are not as good as they used to be. Thankfully, we had no rain on the hike. The sun was out and positively beautiful.
