Day Trip To Blackpool
My 12 year old daughter is too old to attend the summer play scheme this year so instead she was invited to work as a helper, reaping the benefits of free trips to the cinema, bowling, the museum and the big day out - a day trip to Blackpool. Needless to say it was a dull and dismal day but big fun was had at the Pleasure Beach fun fair. We did all the traditional Blackpool things - ice cream, donkeys, Blackpool rock, chips, fizzy drinks, deck chairs.
My thrill seeking child was on this horrendous fun fair ride that shot up into the air and shot back down again!
Hane 'em high! Poor meerkats!
A tradional Blackpool tram and the famous Blackpool tower lurking on the horizon.
The vast stretch of beach. When the sea goes out you have to walk a long way for a paddle.
Blackpool ain't Blackpool without the donkeys!
Under the board walk. All sorts of naughties used to and probably still go on here late at night, preferably when the tide is out!
