MINI ADVENTURE 2

Radio Controlled Laser sailing at Lytham St Annes on the Fylde coast on Saturday and Fleetwood on Sunday

Sleepy spot Lytham St Annes swimming pool carpark £5 for over night … £8-50 for 24hours …3 days stay only GPS coords (53.7461728, -3.0318169)

Fridays weather at home was again awful as it has been since we arrived back from Hettys European adventures sending The Cook into a depression of epic proportions..Within a week of our return she was planning another adventure to Denmark in early September after reading a report from other adventurers “Heels for Dust ” who are in Scandinavia at the moment and have been to the artists area called SKAGAN on the northern tip of Denmark where the light is so special drawing artists such as Peder Krøyer to paint here

Back to this weekends outing with more planning for Denmark to come in later blogs

The closer to the west coast the brighter it got and the sun came out whilst we strolled around Lytham remembering childhood visits The town has an old fashioned air about it in a very pleasant way ..Gardens along the Prom and a shortened Pier after a fire back in the 70’s .. Slot machines at the entrance to the Pier .. Penny push again bringing back memories The Driver splashes out with a 2 p but didn’t win anything ..

The town is mostly charity shops We love a charity shop and search for treasures The Driver came out with a pair of deck shoes for £6

A pint (The Cook has a sparkling water as she’s on another diet) in the town pub to watch the cricket was our next stop before a walk to the beach huts on the promenade and supper in the local Toby Carvery ..We can recommend it ..

On our return to Hetty sailing friends arrived in their Motorhome and the people in the next van came back with their tiny 2year old girl called India so then there was lots of chatting and bed time was put back a while but slept like a log

Morning came too early as we moved off to Fairhaven lake ..a mile down the road for the sailing event and breakfast

More later ..

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
