Nice vintage tram went past.
Looked into the Fabric Shop.

We then looked around Fleetwood Market.
Great market.
Got some right bargains.
Then we carried onto the sea front.
Nice sight!
It started to rain again.
Went into the cafe on the front for lunch

Once we had lunch.
Time to walk off lunch.
Hopped back on the tram, back to the B&B to unload the bargains.
While hubby caught up with his sleep,
I chilled downstairs until we had tea.
After tea, off to Fleetwood to take a picture of the sunset there.
Off to Fleetwood again on the tram.

Trying Out The Buses....

When having my portrait painted I don't want justice, I want mercy - Billy Hughes.
Welcome to my Monday 🎪
Up for a much needed brew.
We did the Heardles.
Heardle 60s was:
Washed and dressed.
Now for a lovely breakfast.
Goes back up to the bedroom.
Rain macs needed.
Waits for the tram to Star Gate.
Gets off at Star Gate,
Crosses the road, to get the bus to Lytham.
Bus arrives.
We sit up the top at the front of the bus.
After 20 minutes we arrive in Lytham.
The first charity shop we go in, my youngest son wins 4 prizes on the Tombola.
He wanted that big teddy, but didn't win it.
We carry on looking around Lytham.
In one charity shop I got chatting to a woman (Who said she was 71 years old and happily divorced from her husband)
She had a lovely black Lab dog.Who liked plenty of fuss. She gave him a better life from the bad life he had. She has had him for 4 years and called him Tom. We had a good chat for half an hour. Then off for a much needed coffee!
One son went back to the previous Charity Shop to buy a huge grey Teddy Bear.
We caught the bus to St Annes.
Time to look around.
We found a nice takeaway place for lunch.
We sat in the park and ate our lunch.
Afterwards we carried on exploring St Annes, and picking up more bargains.
We caught the bus back to Blackpool.
Got on the tram from Star Gate, nearly getting to South Shore, when the tram driver slammed on the brakes, the conductor went flying.
Some kids were walking in front of the tram, four made it over, the fifth kid decided at the very last minute not to risk it and did a U turn.
The tram driver just put the brake on the tram stopped straight away. We had to wait for 10 minutes for a replacement tram driver. 
We set back off, and we got off a South Shore.
The tram number was 001.
Yesterday when we got off at South Shore, a man tried to take a selfie with the tram moving off and nearly hitting him in the process.
A blast of horn from the tram driver moved him out of the way.
Note to self, keep away from 001
Walked to see my old mate who has a 4* hotel and used to work at Royal Mail.
He said to my son with the big Teddy Bear,
"You won the teddy?"
My son replied, "No, I bought it!".
We had a good long chat, with coffee, and got talking to one of his guests that was stopping there. After 2 hours, I wished him well and hope to see him next year as well.
We get the tram from South Shore to the Cabin stop.
Back to the B&B.
Unpacked all our bargains.
Light tea.
Hubby goes off to take some lovely photo of the sunset↓
Meanwhile I have a quick look in the newspaper.
