As I said on Sunday we actually had some rain last week - the caravan garden was very happy and we hope that there is more today, although we are at home now and also expecting rain here!
As it rained in the morning on Friday we went for a walk in the afternoon - we couldn't decide where to go and in the end it was too late to go far, so Morecambe it was!
Having parked the car near the shops we walked past (and into some) before heading down towards the promenade!
Hubby didn't express his wish to go to the Rotunda so when it comes to TSFT I'll tell you what we did!
You may have seen some of these places before - both here and on lovely Jo's blog.
We started quite close to the Rotunda - no sign of the Lake District through the mist!
All along this are there are railings.
Here is the Rotunda seen through one section.
This story was told over three section of fence
Something a bit less morbid...
There was a couple sitting on a bench to the left so I didn't get a good shot of the Cormorants.
Nearly at the end of the railings now and we looked out over the bay
Morecambe is quite rightly proud of it's bird installations - we love to watch the waders, especially in Autumn and at the moment there are lots of seagulls around
Here is a link with a little about Eric and his partner Ernie Wise
Their Christmas special programmes were the highlight of Christmas TV programmes for may years and I still laugh when I see clips! I'm not sure whether you can access them outside the UK.
I had forgotten about these as we don't often walk this way!Now, it's time for T stands for Tuesday at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's. Talking of time whizzing, TSFT is 5 years old today and Thanks to Elizabeth's hosting is a great place to meet up every week and share our drink related posts!
As I said, we didn't go to the Rotunda. It was only when we got back to the caravan that hubby said...(imagine sad voice) "We didn't go for a coffee", so on Saturday when he came to pick me up after the workshop(more coming soon) I suggested we go to Beetham Nurseries for coffee.
See the happy face!!!
I didn't intend eating all of my Key Lime Pie but it was so delicious I ate it all!(and suffered later)
Elizabeth asked on my blog whether I had ever made a journal page without stamping...I had to go a long way back but...I found one..from November 2017...
...and I have made another to celebrate the birthday!!
I used a bit of under paper, some gold washi tape,a piece of yellow Turmeric teabag, a little bit of infusions sprinkled deli paper and an image cut from a magazine that I edged with distress ink. I added some chit chat stickers and spattered everything with bronze paint and then sat on my hands!!!
I am adding this to Art for Arts Sake at AJJ.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
I still have a lot of blogs to catch up on so a lot of time hugging the computer coming up!
Thanks for looking, Chris
