Blackpool is Brilliant !

Spending quality time with loved ones is something that is very important to me and every now and then I like to do something spontaneous.

In the UK we are having a heatwave at the moment, so when I woke up to glorious sunshine on Sunday morning I knew we had to get out of the house and make the most of the weather.

After going through a few idea’s we decided on Blackpool (I’ll never say no to the beach)

So off we went on our 2 hour journey. By the time we got there I was starving so we headed to Coral Island as they have a themed bar & restaurant called The Buccaneer, which is set in Pirate captains library. I’m a complete sucker for anything themed.

Now feeling a little full we decided to have a few goes on the penny slots, I lost all my money as usual.

We then took a lovely walk along the prom and down to the sand, luckily I had covered myself in factor 50 earlier and had my hat on as it was scorchio.

After a general wonder around we decided to hit the Pleasure Beach

As I’m not really a fan of rides we just purchased the £6 tickets so I could have a good look round. First stop was the bar as its next to the dancing water show ( my husband is obsessed with fountains after seeing the ones at the Bellagio in Vegas this year) The picture is terrible !

We also got lost in the Maze and visited Nickelodeon Land. There was so much sponge bob it was unreal!

All in all I can honestly say it was a great day out, the weather helped a lot and the company, but I’ll definitely be going back as since returning home I’ve found so many more things to do there that are free !

Here’s a final picture of me locked up & of my outfit of course.
