Blue Skies and Sunshine in Cleveleys.

Caroline invited me to go out with her,Trev and Charlie today.  William was working this morning and then coming home to do some DIY involving the kitchen ceiling.  I usually like to make myself scarce when any DIY is going on so, I said yes please and tagged along.

Caroline had checked the weather forecast and sunshine was predicted around 11 a.m. over on the Fylde coast so that was our destination.  Thankfully the Met office got it right.  Boy, was it cold though. Very cold and windy but oh so glorious too.  We enjoyed a long, brisk walk down the promenade and back.  It certainly was not weather for strolling along.  Trev took Harley down onto the beach.

We were not the only ones enjoying the bracing air.  I think the seagulls were having the most fun.  Catching the wind and just gliding.  I love to see them doing that. 

The day was complete when we tucked into fresh Fleetwood fish & chips sitting in the car looking out at the sea.  Our timing was perfect.  As we ate, hailstones bounced down outside and the sky clouded over.  It didn't matter though, after our fish & chips we were ready to head home.

It had been a good day out.  My kind of day.  

Thanks, Caroline and Trev, for letting me tag along.

I'm so with you on this one! I love a day that's cold but clear and beautiful. They are my favorites.

(Of course, here in Georgia USA, our cold is rarely if ever THAT cold. )

That does sound like a great day. Except for the cold. I am just not a cold weather person at all. Hubby and I took a walk today -- my first since spraining my ankle 3-1/2 months ago. Boy it takes a long time to heal. Hope you've had a great week. Best wishes, Tammy
