Before arriving at our Destination (Essex, South-East England via Wales), D and me stopped at a couple of seaside resorts, the most famous being Blackpool, Lancashire, England.
For many, the best time to enjoy Blackpool Pleasure Beach is at night when the luminous lights are flickering and dancing before your eyes, hence the popularity of Blackpool Illuminations when almost every kind of blinding light you can imagine is displayed.
D and me were just appreciative of the dry and the bright blue skies. The walk towards Blackpool Tower was so refreshing, in the sense that there was not hustle and bustle of bumping into other tourists. The trams were also not running due to work being carried out on location.
As we walked towards the Tower and the Beach, I admired some of the displays attached to lamp posts.
This peacock was perhaps my favorite.
Fudge and nougat - not that I bourght any, as this place was closed.
Blackpool Tower is inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It is 518 foot and 9 inches (158 metres) in height. We did not get the opportunity to explore the Tower as it was closed to the public as it is currently undergoing transformation. It will re-open this September as the Blackpool Tower Eye.
Once upon a time, you could win a stuffed Jungle Animal such as a giraffe, tiger, lion or even a cuddly bear - nowadays it meerkats.
