Set in a sleepy side street called Crescent Walk in the coastal town of West Kirby on north-west corner of the Wirral Peninsula, the Aubergine Café is one of those wonderful cafés that you can’t help be keeping going back to again and again.

It warm, welcoming and friendly café, were the staff know their regular customers and chat to them like old acquaintances.
Charmingly decorated with whimsical wall plaques espousing life mottos and saccharin wisdom and beautiful ornaments and china.
We opted to sit inside, and not brave the wet weather by sitting out side in the covered area… despite the cozy and inviting look of the wicker furniture with its luxurious array of cushions and rugs.
Our lunch time visit was a much welcome break after our wild coastal walk from Moreton/Leasowe. We were spoilt for choice and in the end I opted for Grilled Goats Cheese on ciabatta with onion chutney
while my husband plumed for the Club sandwich.
Great wholesome food in generous portions, filling the hungry amongst us. I was tempted by the Soup Sandwich combo which as Sweet Potato with Ginger and Lime.
Despite my every effort to be good and not over indulge, we couldn’t resist a slice of chocolate cake to share (a small compromise on not having cake or having a piece each). Again the choices exceed my imagination.

Time to brush the bank holiday cobwebs away with a walk over to Bidston Hill to the Bidston Windmill.
There has been a windmill on this site for nearly 400 years. The current brick windmill replaced a wooden peg mill which was destoryed in gales in 1791.
A bracing walk around West Kirby Marina on Good Friday.
Dog walkers, beach combers, families, sunbathers and joggers.
We took one of our favourite coastal walks along the North Wirral Coastal Park from Moreton to Hoylake. Here are some of our finds from our walk:
A lonely dandelion head
A desolate shell

An early morning beach walk across the sands at West Kirby.
Another bright start to the day, so we went out for a coastal walk along the North Wirral Coastal Park from Moreton to Meols.

We were greeted by this glorious sunrise on Boxing day. We had driven up late on Christmas Day evening and gone to bed very late after doing some of the preparations for Christmas dinner and wrapping the last of the presents.
It was surprising to see how much snow was left. It often doesn not snow much on the Wirral, and when it does the snow tends to not to stay very long.
