Making The Most Of The Sunshine!

 If you play with anything long enough it will break - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Monday in Blackpool🗼
Nice warm hug with brew to start Monday!
Had a lovely cooked breakfast.
We are going to explore outside Blackpool today.
Now out to get the tram!
We missed one tram.
The next tram was full.
The next tram we squeezed on.
When we got down to Starr Gate.
We saw a classic tram!
Tries to run for the bus.....
Misses it!
Another bus goes past and didn't stop at our bus stop :(
Now to wait half an hour for the next bus.
Helicoper about.
Gets the bus to Lytham!
Nice charity shops to look around.
One bargain find↓
Nice pair of shoes,
(Pity they were not my size!)
We sat down in the public square to rest our feet!
Then we caught the bus to
St Annes on Sea.
I got loads of bargains.
Our favourite shop shut at 3pm.
So we nipped into another Coffee Shop.
The person serving wasn't very nice, when I only ordered 3 drinks and not 4.
One of my sons didn't want anything!
I bought some crochet blankets...
I hope soon I will be able to do my own!
We went into one place and before he gave us a price on anything, he looked it up on Ebay!
The Porsche was £16
The lambo was £14.
I decided on something else...
It was too late to visit the Les Dawson Statue.
(We will come up again on Thursday!)
Back on the bus to Starr Gate...
Gets the tram to the South Pier.
Food time.
Well full now....
Now to wait for tram back to the B&B

Back to unpack all the bargains we got today.
Time for a hot chocolate with nibble...
Then to rub down hubby with my warm hands and with....

 Nice t-shirt to wear today↓
 We have a lovely breakfast.
We left in our rain macs.
We waved to the Tower
 There was a nice car in the near by car park↓
 We caught the tram to Star Gate.
Then got utterly soaked  going from Tram to Bus Stop in the space of 20 minutes.
 I had to wring out the water in my skirt a few times!
Good job I had leggings on!
One bus failed to stop.
The next bus did stop!
We goes to Lytham St Annes.
We pop into the First Charity Shop.
Where to get a change of trousers for our kids, as they are soaked as well.
I buy all the teddy bear wool.
The next charity shop,
I buy myself another skirt!
Now to visit a nice coffee shop

 Coffee time↓
 Nice shop lay out↓
 New trousers for the youngest↓
 His pudding↓
 Our pudding↓
 A nice film to watch when I gets home↓
 We leave the coffee shop↓
 Hubby gets some more jeans to wear.
There was some nice music playing outside the Charity Shop.
 Then we jump onto a bus to Lytham.
There were lots of Charity Shops.
I got some nice things.
Another Red Telephone Box.
We jump on to another bus to Blackpool.
Tram to the South Pier.
Late lunch time!
 That is giving me ideas for later↓
 Back on the tram to the B&B.
 Unloads the trolley↓
We have something to eat.
Now as the sun is going down,
We are going on the trams to see the lights at the bottom end of Blackpool.
 Back on the tram to the South Pier
 We catch the tram to the End Of the Line at Fleetwood Ferry.
 Back to Tom's Cabin Tram Stop.
We walked back to the B&B.
We can just make out the Tower!
 One rare late Saturday Night \o/
