Blackpool

We went to Blackpool to see the Illuminations over the weekend. It’s been a year or two since we last went and I have to admit they were excellent this year. (For those of you in other countries who don’t know where Blackpool is, it’s on the north west coast of England and is a favourite holiday resort with excellent beaches and a theme park with rides that are not for the faint hearted – which is me!)

We took our grandson and one of his friends and they had the time of their lives, and when darkness fell we were all duly impressed with the Lights which are strung both along the road and across the road. Apparently the Illuminations started in 1879 with 8 arc lamps and now they stretch for six miles and can be seen from space. They cost 2.4 million to stage and attract over 3.5 million visitors in 9 weeks – and I wished I’d taken my camera so that I could have shown you one or two of the displays.

Perhaps another time…
