The Retirees go Abroad – The Lakes District – Blackpool


We dropped Joe and Sue in town and returned to our B&B. After breakfast in the morning we were on the road again this time to Blackpool and it Illuminations. We had no trouble finding the town nor our hotel but we both felt disappointed. Blackpool looked tired and dirty. We drove the 7 kilometres along the seafront passing its three piers and the Blackpool Tower but it was not our cup of tea. However we did take the time to visit each pier with their fun parks and parlours.

After sunset a dramatic changes take place – the darkness hides everything that is ugly and the lights camouflage its tiredness.

Friday we head for home. Our next rip starts on Wednesday in Croatia.
