English Seaside

Southport Edition.

Heatwave was back, so it was time to go to the beach again.

Shot taken from the pier.

Light above the pier.

Sun reflecting on the water.

My foot in the water.

Something to eat.

Followed by an ice cream, of course.

Place to have some fun times. (I think. I haven’t been there.)

Shops on the street are also sort of typical of the seaside town.

Sun starts setting on the seaside, rides are closing.

Bye-Bye!

All tired out from the day, you make your way to the station, only to be faced with the reality of the train to Manchester being cancelled. The next one would not depart until an hour after the cancelled one.

Distrust in the railway company, coupled with your ever present anxiety, forces you to seek another solution.

You board the next train to Liverpool and return to Manchester via Liverpool South Parkway. You get home at about the same time you would if you had taken the train after the cancelled one.

What a journey!


For the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge – Journey.

In case you want to know, I didn’t have to buy another ticket, the one I had was valid for the alternative journey.

  1. Your photographs are lovely, Linda. There’s something quite special about the first, the figures on the beach taken from the pier, remind me of a Lowry painting. Thank you for sharing this with our challenge.
