Along the banks of the River Ribble near Preston

 

  • River Ribble – 75 miles long, rises in Yorkshire, flows through Lancashire into the Irish Sea
  • The Ribble Way, long distance footpath, follows the course of the river through a picturesque and fascinating landscape.
  • Don’t be put off by the snaps – it isn’t a rubbish walk by any stretch of the imagination

 

Blue skies

Standard

Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see

Seagulls
Crying a song
Nothing but seabirds
All day long

Apologies to Irving Berlin for second verse lyric change. Seagulls/seabirds more appropriate in this neck of the woods than bluebirds. 

Life’s a beach …

…. when you live at the seaside.

Sunday – stretch your legs day, breath of fresh air day.  Starr Gate to St Annes – the beach is a happy place.  Families get together; dogs play; horses gallop; walkers contemplate; joggers jog; metal detectors treasure hunt; kiteboarder scatters a cloud of sanderlings; cameras click.  Imagine life without a beach ….
