He just goes berserk...guess its rats

I know its cack, but its a tradition isnt it

If you are around late enough its the fireworks championships too. Indias turn this week. It gets absolutely packed. Starts at 8:30pm. Its ace.

If you're Bispham end, the best chippy is Bentleys (formerly middle chippy). It's 5 mins walk down Red Bank Rd away from the promenade opposite Sainsburys. Or you can just go for Bispham Kitchen & Top Chippy. More expensive and a tourist trap but its handy all the same.

 

If you are town end, The Yorkshire Fishery on Topping Street is the best by a mile. Again its a bit of a walk inland towards the train station. If you want it easier theres a new all singing and dancing Papas and of course my namesakes, plus a variety of walk by street ones.

Been beautiful on Anglesey today. Clear blue skies and sun. Not that I've seen much of it. Supposed to piss down tomorrow when I have the chance to enjoy some fresh air. Cunt.

This 20mph speed limit malarkey will take some getting used to for the locals. Good news for us kerb crawlers though. Far less conspicuous.

parked up at cleveleys yesterday

lovely late afternoon

couple of hours with the pooch pretending to be a pup and he didnt realise the water level can drop sharpish when chasing gulls in the pools

there's seemingly fortunes being spent on the roads up there @gonzo and not a turd to be seen

loads spent on the prom too

even the wind farm doesnt look too bad

that artworks a bit dodgy tho, with a lump sticking out at head height!

loaded the doggo up and drove into blackpool to see the lights

 

20 mins was enough

looks great all lit up, but the folk, its not for me

Glad you had a goodn. So nice up there isnt it. Well worth the 138 year wait for it to be finished :D

Dont tell anyone how nice it is, we dont want that riff raff from further down :)

Im not sure if the tide goes out any further but i bet there were 30 humans, inc me in that, 20 dogs and mile upon mile of sand

Cinema looks a bit lost and the pub on the front, cleveleys beer festival, looked desolate

Sadly, it needs the riff raff to find out :)

 

Is rossall just a bit further up?

Yeah its further up on the way to Fleetwood. That's my gym next door to that cinema.  

That pub has had various attempts but all seem to fail. Longest standing was when it was Harvesters. Its just fucked in the winter, nobody is going up there for a pint in 50mph wind and rain. God knows what they'll try next.

I never get bored of that beach and front. So good for the lungs and soul. Tide goes miles out and comes all way back in twice a day, very roughly an hour later each time.

Took them a few years to sort that section near Anchorsholme Park but it’s a belting ride now on the bike from Fleetwood all the way to St Anne’s and back

Mustve been for a year or 2 before he started taking me to the match

It really is a cracking spot

Youre lucky having it

Croal and t’irwell are a bit high but nothing of concern. 

Sacked off our walk along the Tees- River not particularly high, although rising, but there are plenty of pieces of tree all over. 

Discretion perhaps required as there are some massive trees around here and it's blowing a hooley.
