Day 303 – Bright Lights…

Some 30 years ago we used to go to Blackpool each year to see the ‘Illuminations’. We’d set off around 6pm after I got home from work, make what was then a 3 hour car trip, drive along the promenade to see the fabulous light show, then the same journey home with the kids asleep on the back seat. We went again today, first time for a very long time, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We got there much earlier, so had chance to look around in daylight before trying our luck in the amusement arcade, before the obligatory drive to look at all the lights. What a great afternoon and evening, topped off with Blackpool’s famous fish and chips…!

Day 81 – A Stately Pile…

Seighford Hall is a 16th-century timber-framed manor house and grounds near Stafford, re-designed in the 18th century. Although it looks pretty derelict from this angle, it is currently in use as a nursing home. I bet it has some stories to tell…
