So, this afternoon's Liverpool Arab Arts Festival grand finale was as amazing as I thought it would be.

I even got to see my first whirling dervish dance, which was just fab.

The atmosphere in the Palm House was just buzzing. Loved it!

There was some amazing dancing at the World Museum Liverpool on Saturday as part of the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival.

The dancers were with the Funoon dance group (http://www.funoonalarabiya.org/), led by Nawarra.

It was so much fun to watch and photograph. They're a very talented group of ladies.

It's been a difficult couple of days following the UK referendum, with the two halves continuing to fight and bitch about each other. However, I can always rely on my little girlies making me smile, no matter what. I have blessings I can easily count ☺

The tomb of the gambler
This is an older post, but with new photos.

I wasn't particularly happy with the original photos I took with my old camera. I was up near Rodney Street yesterday, so I popped by with my newer, better camera and got some new photos of this Victorian-era pyramid-shaped grave in Liverpool.
A look at the so-called 'Tomb of the Gambler' at the church of St Andrew in Liverpool.

& " Going Out in Style " really inspired me in that. I actually discovered that obelisks were inspired by Egyptian ones. I still have photos of Egyptian - inspired monuments on a DeviantArt account that should still be there.

This very beautifully and ornately carved gravestone of John Roscoe is in the grounds of the Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas in Chapel Street in central Liverpool.

There's been a religious building on the site since 1257; the current church suffered a spire collapse in the 19th century and was then bombed in the Second World War.

The graveyard used to cover an area greater than now, which may be why this gravestone has been moved and secured to the wall of the garden of remembrance.

Love this pharaonic-style head looking out from the side of the Cunard Building in Liverpool.

The Cunard Building - one of the 'Three Graces' - was built in the early twentieth century and has a series of figures around the outside, representing different cultures from around the world, highlighting the international nature of the ocean-liner industry.

Starting to think I might need to get myself one of these, what with all the rain we've been having recently (though I think I'd pick one that wasn't already full of water ...)

Looking down at the composite columns and acanthus frieze on the Liverpool Central Library. This part of the building houses the beautiful Picton Reading Room.

+Dmitry Ivanov Thanks! The library has a rooftop terrace, which is where I took the photo from.

Wonderful place - so many great works of art to see in a truly beautiful building. They have trails and quizzes for children, good, helpful information about the stuff on display and a lovely cafe which serves great food. And all in the gorgeous, picturesque setting of Port Sunlight. Highly recommended.

Both my children have gone to this nursery and loved it. It's a fun, caring environment for young children. They have Early Years teachers to help the children develop both the social and personal skills they need for when they move on to school. My youngest has really overcome her shyness with others because of the staff here. They also have a well-equipped, lovely outdoor area. Would very much recommend.

Great for a family day out; lots of things for the children to interact with, a wide range of topics (within the history of Liverpool) covered. Wonderful views of the Albert Dock and Three Graces from the top floor. Cafe is a bit small during busy times. We had to give up on the idea of a cup of tea as there was nowhere to sit down.
