It was Lindsay's birthday yesterday (Thursday) so we decided to take a trip to Freeport (a shopping outlet) in nearby Fleetwood. Despite a forecast of showers all day we were very lucky and the dark clouds stayed away until late in the day when I was heading back home - and then the rain arrived!
We had a pleasant few hours wandering around and although Lindsay treated herself to some new shoes and a top (she WAS the birthday girl after all!), I was very good and only bought some assorted bags of sweets - flying saucers, barley sugars, floral gems, aniseed twists - from the Sweet Emporium for my other half (who has an addiction to them at the moment).
There's not a lot of choice when it comes to "eateries" at Freeport so we ended up having a fish and chips lunch - when we came back outside we spotted this very cheeky seagull tucking into the leftovers on people's plates ..........
Loved the harbour, with all the boats moored along each side or sailing off to destinations unknown, and the salty smell of the sea air took me right back to childhood days spent on the local beaches.
