Day 5: Liverpool

This statue was given by the church to show the ties to Liverpool
So on the last day of the trip we went to Liverpool. We got to see the docks where thousands of Saints emigrated to the states. We learned a little more about how hard it was to travel over and at the end we sang "Come, Come, Ye Saints" and it was so wonderful! Then we went to the Maritime Museum which was really cool-- except for when I got separated from Jenny and went into a mild panic attack which entailed me running around the museum asking others in my group if they had seen Jenny! After about 15 minutes of frantically running around all the exhibits (including a dark depiction of life on a ship) I found her at the elevator! It was good to be reunited. I am sure the video surveillance of me running around was quite funny- I even considered having her paged!Don't mind the gnome hat! The Attic

And of course when in Liverpool... Go see the BEATLES!!! We then went to the Beatles museum and had a great time learning about the history of the band. The museum was pretty great- expect for a few parts where they had scary wax figures!That afternoon we had a treat cause we got to go to Chatsworth which is Mr. Darcy's Pemberly in the most recent Pride and Prejudice! The grounds were so pretty and of course we had fun taking pictures!!!Duke and Duchess Devonshire with an awkward statute in between them

It was a great way to end the week trip!
