Our trip to Manchester was gladly filled with a day trip to Blackpool. It is actually is surprising how close they actually are to each other. We took the enjoyable train ride from Manchester and were in sunny Blackpool by the sea within the hour, passing through gorgeous green countryside on the way.
Our first sight of Blackpool Tower was greeted by comments of 'it looked a lot bigger when I was last here' bearing in mind the last time that I was in Blackpool was with my Girls Brigade Summer Camp quite a number of years ago, quite being modest.
We didn't make it as far as Pleasure Beach but walked from North Pier down to Central Pier and when there took ourselves onto the Waltzer and the Big Ferris Wheel. Don't think Chris and I have laughed so much than what we did on the Waltzer!!
