Caroline suggested last week, when the sun was cracking the flags, that we go to the beach today. So what was the weather like this morning? Raining that’s what. However we’re not easily put off and we went anyway. So glad we did too because by the time we got there the sun was shining again.
After which we headed into Lytham centre. There are lots of really quaint cottages dotted around the town all beautifully kept. We mooched around the shops a little bit, lots of those too. It was getting hotter by the minute. A latte for us and an ice cream for Charlie were needed by this time. Fortunately it was a very easy task to find a nice coffee shop to sit outside and enjoy a little breather.
We spent time on the beach, Charlie had a great old time getting his shoes and socks wet through in the sea and playing with his bucket and spade. It was all fun until at the end of the afternoon when we called at McDonald’s at Freeport for a quick bite to eat. Unfortunately Charlie fell just inside the doorway and smacked his little face into the tiled floor. He burst his nose, you wouldn’t believe the amount of blood that poured from it. He got a fat lip too. The staff were so helpful and brought out ice cubes wrapped in a towel etc. Poor little chap. I’ve just spoken to Caroline and he’s back to normal and none the worse for his experience, thank goodness.
