Didn't we have a lovely time the day we went to Morecambe

We had a lovely day ,yesterday . We set off early and dropped the caravan off at the Caravan Hospital for some repairs , then off we went to Morecambe. Not on the motorway but a more leisurely drive up the A6. First we went to spend a few hours with Ambermoggie and Mr Mog . Amber made us a delicious lunch of soup and homemade bread . Meg made a great fuss of Mr Mog and everytime he got up to do anything off she'd trot behind him. After lunch we all went into Morecambe for a stoll along the prom. It was heaving and we had a job to find somewhere to park . There was a lifeboat and Rescue Helicopter in the bay practicing so everyone was up there watching. We all had a nice stroll along the prom towards Bare .I'm not sure what this wooden building is but it's very New England .
Yachts at anchor with the Cumbrian fells behind. We walked back to the cars where we said farewell to Amber and Mr Mog . Amber wasn't feeling 100% so they went home.
We carried on along the front to the Stone Jetty to see the newly refurbished Midland Hotel. The beautiful Art Deco Hotel the stands on the shore looking out over the Bay . This is the front .
This is the back. I wonder how much it costs for one of the rooftop suites ??
The next pics are one of the main reasons we went to Morecambe . DH loves to paint sunsets but has never painted one over Morecambe Bay and as he used to live there it would be rather special for him to do so. We knew it was going to be a nice day so the chances of a perfect sunset were good . The following pics would say so .
The Sun
the West
On a Perfect Day.
