You'll be pleased to know that the rain did clear this morning after that gloomy start, by the time I had finished my breakfast the sun had come out. In fact I have been dead lucky all day, only a few spots of rain landed on me. I was pretty close to it mind you, at times I was walking on wet roads where it had rained only minutes before, and the skies looked quite dark ahead of me. I even saw lightening and heard thunder, and had to put my umbrella up for a couple of minutes when I was pelted with hailstones.
Anyway, this is me setting off along the Prom, looking over Morecambe Bay. You will see I have brought a little friend along, this is Puddytat, he didn't want to stay at home.
My tea tonight was the rest of the salad from last night, a slice of toast which I wrapped in a serviette from breakfast, and some biscuits in the room with the tea and coffee making facilities. I went a walk round Kirkby, it's a lovely little town, lots of little alleyways and stone cottages. I was running out of good daylight, I'll get a few snaps tomorrow before I leave. The people round here are ever so friendly, I had a nice chat with a man while I was enjoying the views over the river. And the lady in the Spar shop was chatty. I spent 80p on a bottle of reduced juice and a bag of reduced chocolate. Scrummy. It's very late so time for bed. I've had a wonderful day.
