Road Trip To Blackpool

“After all, the best part of a holiday is perhaps not so much to be resting yourself, as to see all the other fellows busy working.”

The alarm went off...
 Quick breakfast.
We loaded up the car.
 Said goodbye to the house.
See you Tuesday

While listening to "The Sounds of the 60s"
We have a first stop off the motorway↓

We went for a coffee

We left to get the tram to Cleveleys.
We got off to get our evening meal from Aldi.
I walked into a charity shop and the shop assistants started loudly taking the piss out of the t-shirt I was wearing again.
I left in disgust.
We can the tram back into Blackpool.
We nip into McDonalds↓
 While we were waiting to get the tram back to the B&B, two men were singing a great song.
I had to sing along with them...
We were great as a trio.
The song was↓
