Skywatch Friday: Blackpool (3)


Today's photograph is a contribution to Skywatch Friday.

It was taken the day after the ones on last week's post and the previous week's post.

This one is a couple of miles further South behind the dunes opposite Pontins.

  10. Things are looking up in blackpool after the passing of that ominous dark cloud.
    When I was a whipersnapper I saved up my paper round money and had a week at Pontins, a kind of hi-di-hi wakey-wakey campers sort of place it is, or was.

    To answer your question on my blog, the answer is four TABLESPOONS of sugar.
    That is probably why it is called *Dangerous* Chocolate Cake In A Mug.

  27. Pontins and Butlins, forgot about them, I did a search on them and see they are both still in business. It was never my cup of tea, I always refered the lakes.

  28. Fantastic shot. That could be the beach and the waves instead of the sky. I didn't know that you had sun in Blackpool. :)
