Blackpool Illuminations

A few weeks ago, Luke and I had a date night so we visited Blackpool and the illuminations. Luke had never been, so I had to take him.

We drove the scenic way over the moor tops at Haworth towards the Colne valley and saw this magnificent rainbow...

We also saw the sunset over the M55 driving into Blackpool...

Then we were there...

Welcome to Blackpool

There was a huge mirror ball on the promenade...

...which you could see yourself in if you stood beneath it!

The beach looked stunning but was closed off...
...possibly because it was sooooo WINDY!

The lights came on at sunset and we saw lots of sparkles...

We had much fun, in the arcades and eating greasy burgers and chips for tea although I must admit the illuminations were not as exciting as I remembered them being as a child. We arrived back at the car as wind swept icicles.
