Enjoying The Lights!

Do you like Pina Colonics and getting caught in the rain? -

Welcome to my Saturday in Blackpool 🗼
Had a good night's sleep in the lovely bed!
Gets dressed.
Nice breakfast.
Then on goes the rain hat and rain mac.
It's going to be a wet day!
Off to the tram stop we go.
While waiting for the tram.
An ex-boyfriend I went out with 22 years ago walks past me, wearing a big lumo coat.
His partner was wearing a yellow lumo hat with the name of my ex-boyfriend on the front of hat in big red letters......
Oh dear, I had a lucky escape!
The tram arrived.
They got on the tram further up.
We stopped on the tram until Fleetwood.
We got off and it was still raining.
Off to look around Fleetwood Market.
I found a Bling market stall.
Got chatting to some women in there.
They hadn't visited Cleveleys, I told them there is some great Charity Shops there.
I bought myself some Bling!
Out of the market we went.
Got the newspaper.
Popped into Fleetwood Fabrics.
Got some bits.
Moved onto the Holistic Shop.
Got some nice crystals.
The only downside was, their card machine wasn't working.
Hubby went off to get some cash out of the machine.
I managed to scrape the amount together.
Once I bought them, out in the wind and rain I went to find hubby.
Met up with hubby, and had enough of this wind and rain.
Nice Pillar Box topper↓
We didn't look further at anymore Charity shops and hopped onto the tram to Cleveleys. 
Once we got off the tram,
It's Charity Shop time....
Loads of nice bargains we got.
Then it was Coffee Time!
After that liquid refreshment.
Onto the next Charity Shop, where they were playing some 50's and 60's music.
I started to sing along like you do.
The woman behind the till asked, "Who was singing this song?"
I replied, "Fats Domino!"
"Correct!" She said.
Then a woman came over, wagging her finger at me.
It was the woman at Fleetwood Market from earlier, she finally discovered the Charity Shops at Cleveleys!
We carried on looking at one side of the road, crossed over and looked at them on the otherside of the road.
We got some nibbles from Poundland.
Then back on the tram back to the hotel.
Time to wear yet more sequins!
Now out for some dinner.
Nice views from the top of the Velvet Coaster.
We caught the tram from the Pleasure Beach down to Starr Gate.
We got off at Starr Gate.
We caught the tram to Little Bispham
Got off and got back on.
All the way back to the South Shore.
Then back to the Hotel to pack up ready to leave for tomorrow.
Quick look in the newspaper...
UK No.1 on this day in 1977:
Baccara - Yes Sir, I Can Boogie.
US No.1 on this day in 1966
Question Mark and the Mysterians - 96 Tears.
Now to use the big bed.....
Night all x
