No - this time it was Blackpool's south promenade. We took a tram to Starr Gate and then walked back towards South Pier. We passed the Mirror Ball and ...
the Solarium, where we stopped for a cup of tea and a look around the art display.
Photographs of 'old' Blackpool were on show.
It wasn't as packed today as it was here even thought the weather was fine.
Coming out of the Solarium we continued along the prom.
One of our largest attractions is the Pleasure Beach. Here you can see the Big One.

Various works of 'art' are scattered along the walkway. They are called the Great Promenade Show.
This pier is not my favourite. The boards wobble causing sensitive souls like me to feel a little queasy and the rides blast forth very loud music.
There are wonderful views of the coast line though.
The seating arrangements are not as grand as North Pier but have the requisite sea side theme.
This is the back of the Sandcastle - another attraction.
I had to walk to the very end of the pier but my friend didn't dare. It was very un-nerving to see the beach umpteen feet below.
I made it and looked back towards the prom.
You can be relieved of your money very easily in Blackpool.
