Finally Getting There!

Anything you buy will be in the sale next week - Erma Bombeck
Welcome to my Tuesday in Blackpool 🚋
Nice hug with brew.
Dressed.
Nice cooked breakfast to start the day with.
We are visiting Fleetwood to look around their market and get some bargains!
While we were waiting for a tram, a vintage tram went past us.
The next two trams for FULL for Fleetwood.
So we caught the tram on the otherside to Starr Cross instead, then go to Fleetwood from there.
We saw another vintage tram....
We finally got to Fleetwood!
We get some bargains from in there.
Then we go for a coffee at a nearby coffee/ bookshop.
Then it's time to look around Fleetwood!
 
We get back on the tram,
Wearing our face masks.
 
We go to Lidl to buy our evening meal.
Look what they have got in there...
Gets what we need...
Back on the tram...
Tea is served!
Back to the room to catch up with today's newspaper.

First Day Of The Holiday.....

Everything takes longer than it should except sex - Murphy's Law
Up nice and early...
Car was packed up.
I fell asleep minutes after we left the house until we got to first services....
 Back to the car after the coffee/toilet break.
Another stop to be had...
Back to the car,
Trying to do Crochet...
Back on the road....
 
Finally gets to the B&B.
Unloads the car.
The bed is looking nice! 
Back out to collect a Magic Bag from Morrisons.
Tram time!
Gets off at Starr Gate...
For the long walk to Morrisons.
We finally got to Morrisons after over a miles walk!
The lucky bag turned out to be a rather large tray of things.
I was one given one carrier bag but had to buy another one, as we all couldn't carry the food!
I needed something to eat...
Time for afternoon tea!
We didn't fancy walking back...
(There were grumbles if we had that!)
We caught the bus back to the tram stop.
Back on the tram, laden with shopping!
Loads of things we got from the lucky bags
We had our tea....
Then back out to look around the tramstop before going on the tram to Fleetwood to watch the sun going down.
Back on the tram to Fleetwood.
Back to the B&B.
Caught up with today's newspaper.
Now to make the bed come alive!
