Back On My Feet





At the start of the month we had a small evening wander to Blackpool, last night we set off in the other direction and walked to Lytham. It was a really nice evening and Dan had been listening to a rather stressful game of football so we thought it might be a good idea, and it was. 

We took the quickest route into the town then got onto the beach at the pier and walked on the beach for the majority of the way there then got back onto the prom for the last mile or so into the town. We stopped of for a very welcome drink then headed off home, the bus was at the stop when we left the pub but we decided to walk back too. 


This is the view heading towards home


and one final look back


I realised I had a blister by the time we go to Fairhaven Lake, but we plodded on, this time we walked back along the road rather than the beach which meant we were able to see the rock garden when we got back to the town and we knew we were nearly home!


We had another drink when we got back to St Anne's then came home for Match of the Day and a bit of a flop around before bed! A pretty perfect evening.

    1. Thank you. It was a lovely walk, I'm just so annoyed that the blister was caused by a bit of sand rubbing the bottom of my foot.

  2. We had glorious weather-no sea side but walked around our little pond a bit. My drink was a Diet Coke but still enjoyable. We could have walked to a pub.

    1. It's so nice just to be able to get out for a walk isn't it. We don't usually stop off anywhere but we thought for a change, and to be honest as a little bit of a release valve after saving all the money we could to pay for the roof, it was lovely.

    1. Thanks, it was relaxing. We tend to talk about all manner of things when we go for a walk, it seems to free us up somehow.
