Attractions of Blackpool
In the beautiful sunshine we were eager to explore Blackpool!
We visited the Blackpool tower and had a wonderful time in the ballroom watching all of the professional dancers. We felt like we were in an episode of Strictly Come Dancing! The Wurlitzer organ was magnificent to see and hear.
Another day we visited the famous Madame Tussauds wax museum where we mingling with the rich and famous. We had photographs taken with our favourite celebrities including Keith Lemon, Jeremy kyle, Ken Dodd, Benny Hill and the Queen. We also had a drink in The Rovers Return with the likes of Deirdre Barlow, Bet Lynch and Jack and Vera Duckworth.
In St Anne’s we enjoyed a leisurely walk along the promenade and had a lovely lunch in the beautiful sunshine at the famous Seafarers restaurant.
As we entered Blackpoolo zoo we were greeted by the giant tortoises and peacocks that were roaming freely around. We couldn’t wait to see the lions and tigers and were pleased to see them basking in the sun. We watched the sea lions performing in the giant pool, and then visited the petting zoo and stroked the rabbits, goats and sheep.
What fund we had playing the JollyDays bowling competition. We battle it out on the lanes and it was a very close call but the overall winner was Maurice with heather the runner up trophy! Well done all!
We went to Liverpool to follow the footsteps of the Beatles. We had lunch at The Fab4 Cafe on the edge of the Mersey. We sat and ate lunch to the iconic sounds of the Beatles among hoards of Beatles memorabilia. We visited the four bronze statues and had our photos taken with them.
